Bridging the Gap

‘Now you know what it feels like for me every-day, afraid to go out, afraid to stay in, afraid of what the voices will make me do, afraid of other people hurting me, afraid of being alone’ The voice of one of our clients describing what he thought the world was experiencing during lockdown.

Situation

CAPE clients entered the pandemic from a position of disadvantage, already experiencing pre-existing long-term mental health conditions, many with physical health conditions and already isolated from their local communities through fear. We have seen a marked increase in suicidal ideation, safeguarding issues due to the intensity of people’s situation. We entered Lockdown with a waiting list of 70 people needing our services, we need to reach further into the community to meet this need.

Solution

To increase CAPE’s work with adults who experience severe and enduring mental health issues. We provide support services to people with a range of conditions that are severe and disabling. Individual issues we typically work with include trauma-induced complex depression and anxiety, bipolar disorder, psychosis, personality disorders and PTSD.
