Chloe is a young lady who found herself at risk of suicide and with complex emotional needs. She frequently used the emergency services in crisis and became increasingly frustrated that her needs were not being met.
After a stay in the General Hospital, Chloe stayed with us at Hope House for a few weeks. She agreed to work with us to understand and communicate her emotions effectively.
The team at Hope House took much time to build a trusting relationship with Chloe. Although there were some difficult times, we got to a point where Chloe was more relaxed and better able to pre-empt her needs and seek support, demonstrating improved communication in line with her initial goal.
Chloe now says she has not used the emergency services since leaving Hope House and is independently seeking support when required, including from Riverside Sanctuary. Chloe says she feels more confident and has hopes for the future, including wanting to work in mental health support.
