"Lucky I am to be under the care of a complete professional"

About: Sligo/Leitrim Mental Health Services / Sligo Leitrim Psychiatry of Later Life

(as a service user),

I was suffering from depression when I was put under the care of Amanda. From the beginning I felt relaxed. This is an unique skill that Amanda has - putting people at ease. She is also a brilliant communicator. All the advice she has given me has proved invaluable in my recovery. She has a very pleasant personality which helps to relax the patient. I know how lucky I am to be under the care of a complete professional. Her expertise and knowledge of all mental aspects has helped me enormously. I know when I first came here I was pretty secretive, but under Amanda's tutelage I believe I have opened up and become a more rounded person.

I know that I am extremely fortunate to have the guidance of such an excellent tutor.

Finally all I can say is that for me Amanda has been brilliant.

Thank you for your Comment, it is always useful to get any feedback from service users. I'm happy that your experience was a positive one and wish you well in your recovery.

I will ensure that Amanda gets the feedback and the whole team appreciate the work ongoing in the day hospital.
