Hi, my name is caroline_scope!

Hello! My name is Caroline and I'm one of the advisers on the Helpline team. I've been answering calls since June, learning loads and having some really interesting conversations. Before I came to Scope, I worked on a technical team at an energy company. When I wasn't on the phone there, I was a Mental Health First Aider offering a listening ear to my colleagues. I was also volunteering at two different projects supporting mental health. One was a survivor-led crisis helpline; the other focussed on helping children develop resilience and self-confidence while enjoying exercise on their own terms. I've been reading Community posts for all this time and thought it was time to say hello!
