Service user case studies

Terry is a service user who has received support from Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) and Mind’s Mental Health Navigators at the Crisis Cafes and Mental Health Number.  Terry has shared his experiences with mental health difficulties in the hope to breakdown barriers and encourage others to reach out for support if they need to.
