Mental Health Link Worker
The Surgery has access to a Link Worker, who specialises in supporting young people with a variety of mood related issues. He has provided a short introduction as to his role and is based in the practice one pay per week, as well as local schools.
My name is Connor Watkins, and I am the Young Person’s Link Worker for Nethergreen Surgery, part of the Porter Valley Primary Care Network.
If you are aged between 13 -18 and having difficulties with low mood, anxiety, poor confidence or self-esteem, I can work with you to understand more about how you’re feeling and help you find your way into well-being boosting activities to support your health and wellbeing.
This could be introducing you to social events, community activities and support services, helping you build the confidence to engage with these independently and tackle other issues you may be facing such as emotional problems, loneliness, isolation and difficulties with education and employment.
For further information or if you are interested in accessing this, please speak to your GP.
