Katie on her placement at Doncaster Mind

I have had an amazing time and the work you do is clearly in demand, valuable and rewarding.

The placement itself was such a great experience for me as it gave me the opportunity to gain a real insight into working with mental health and the community.  It was everything I could have asked for and will help me relate while continuing my degree.  I believe it has given me an opportunity to make a difference in client's lives and has helped build my own confidence. 

During my time at Doncaster Mind, I was involved with the group courses and activities, I feel much more confident in the work environment.  It was amazing to build relationships with the clients and see their mental health and self-esteem improve over the weeks.  

I particularly enjoyed being part of the waiting room service and I am thankful for being given the opportunity to have my own clients.  Although I was given the freedom to have my own clients, the team monitored me perfectly by regularly checking how things were going, offering support and checking if there was anything they could do to better my experience but most importantly benefit the client. 

The team were very helpful and supportive; they made me feel very welcome.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Doncaster Mind and am grateful for all the team has done for me.

I wish you all the best.
