Some areas the SBS can help:
- Mental Health Issue: when going through ups and downs, moments are calm or in crisis, anxiety, depression, panic attacks the SBS Welfare Officer can help you to find reassurance & relief. It is possible to ask for the Welfare Officer to set up an evaluation for the specific situation at hand; plus help or a referral that may be needed at the time.
One of the many situations where you or someone you know may benefit from unwell physical/mental support:
Mrs. B was going through a period of ups and downs with heightening anxiety. She used local health services; however, she found additional support with the SBS Welfare Officer with whom she established a long term solid relationship based on consistency, continuity, and understanding of the in-depth issues. This empowering her to establish a plan of approach. After 8 yrs with the support of SBS, serving as a pillar of guidance and reliability the client departed with a sense of direction and understanding, being heard, being valued. “She said thank you for not giving up on me and believing in me.“
