David Bryceland, a coordinator for Oxfordshire Mind, has raised awareness on the importance of the Talking Space Partnership.
David spoke about his mental health history, “clearly something was wrong in my life. I am not entirely sure what happened but a year or two before my breakdown I started to experience confusion, emotional instability and a lack of motivation. This persisted and just got worse. I didn’t go to work or socialise, and eventually tried to kill myself.”
The Talking Space partnership allowed David to access much needed talking therapy, during a time of personal distress. He would now recommend Talking Space to others who are struggling to cope, adding: “There is now a seamless referral depending on what you need.”
David Bryceland, now runs the Benefits for Better Mental Health (BBMH) service for people with mental health difficulties navigating the benefits system.
