The Evening Sanctuary gave me time

Lockdown was quite challenging for me. There were lots of things going on. I found the lack of structure really hard, I missed social interactions and services. I felt isolated and alone. I could no longer see my GP, when previously I had regular contact with them, for my mental and physical health. I ended up having a mental health crisis and seeing the Home Treatment team. I also started to get support, by phone, from the Evening Sanctuary.

I found these calls really helpful. The Evening Sanctuary did a great job under extreme circumstances. They listened and understood me, they were compassionate. They also knew me, as I have used the Sanctuary service before, which made it easier for me to connect to them. They gave me time, it made me feel like somebody cared. They also suggested that I join the daytime unit meetings on Zoom that the clubhouse were running.

As the lockdown restrictions eased and people were able to meet outdoors I felt things become easier. I could meet up with friends, other members from Mosaic, in the park, and see the Community Mental Health Team. Things started to fall into place a bit. I'm really grateful for the amazing work that the Evening Sanctuary team did through such difficult times.
