Hi everyone, I am Sam, I am the peer support worker for Lincoln Apex/Lincoln Health Partnership which covers Lincoln city and the villages just outside of Lincoln. I am fairly new to the post having joined in September.
I am currently finishing up my training and looking to gain skills that others have whilst shadowing them. I am also spending time going around all the projects and things going on in this area, so I am in a better place to connect people to the right places.
I want to use my own experiences to be able to support, walk along side, empower, and offer hope to others who are going through their own journey. Although each person’s journey of ill mental health is different I hope, I can offer empathy and connect to parts of their journey having felt them myself. I am looking forward to helping people in any way that I possibly can and to let people know that thoughts, feelings and situations do change.
