Advice on support workers please
Hi everyone, I’m struggling on my own and a support worker would make a huge difference to my life. I’ve had depression, agoraphobia and anxiety for over 40 years, I also have ADHD. I have tried to get a support worker through my GP who told me the ADHD clinic would provide one but unfortunately they said they can’t. I tried through social services but got the same response, went back to my GP who then arranged short term support. This helped tremendously but was for 12 weeks only and she changed her job so I didn’t get the full 12 weeks. I’m having severe problems with universal credit that has been ongoing since I first claimed last year and I need help with this. Please can anyone tell me if there is such a thing as a long term support worker for mental health problems?
