Ok so many people ask me why I set up Woodland Psychological Services Ltd when we have an NHS. How can I compete, and why would anyone pay for a service they can get for free? Well in answer to that - many people cant access the services they need because they simply aren't available on the NHS. The recent change in government, and focus on mental health will mean that in the future we will be able to provide services for people for free, as an NHS provider. I spent 2 years working for an NHS provider, only to find we were turning people away because they didn't fit the 'criteria'. The NHS is over stretched, and admission criteria is becoming so strict that only people with acute difficulties can access treatment, and often these individuals have to wait months before they are seen by the right person. The last thing someone with a mental health difficulty needs is to be passed from pillar to post. Woodland Psychological Services Ltd was set up to fill in the gaps. We have helped people who were desperately trying to access services which are available, supported those let down by academic institutions, and ensured businesses understand mental health difficulties. Mental health is not an isolated and individual issue, it affects everyone in society on some level, and ignorance can be the biggest killer. We aim to combat ignorance by sending out what we call our #WPSTips (tid bits of information about different mental health difficulties, interventions, treatment or available support), via facebook and twitter every week, as part of our #understandingthrougheducation campaign. Even the smallest piece of knowledge can help to support someone who is struggling. Everything we do is to help those who are being left behind. Spread the word, and support someone you know. Thank you, Katie.
