Case studies

Working as a carer was only ever meant to be a stop-gap for media and culture graduate Toni Lawrence. But the 25-year-old from Leeds was experiencing anxiety due to her stressful job and the long hours she was working.

Nursing David back to good mental health

The 50-year-old nurse was working on a ward for elderly people when the Covid pandemic struck. Seeing so many people ill and dying from the virus, while trying to come to terms with the loss of his mum, took its toll.
