Job title: CASS Networker, South Bristol
1) What does your job involve?
I meet with community and voluntary groups to raise awareness of
mental health and to inform them about mental health services
available in Bristol, promoting better links between the groups and
services. I also gather feedback from communities to pass on to
service providers. I am new to the role, as I only started at the
beginning of March this year.
2) What do you enjoy best about your
I enjoy talking to people I meet, getting to know all the great
people in Bristol and finding out about the activities they are
running. There are so many things you can get involved in.
3) Describe how you're feeling today in three
Determined, positive and proactive.
4) What do you do to keep mentally
I practice playing musical instruments to relax my mind - I play
the trombone, tabla, clarinet and piano. I find that concentrating
on playing a piece of music and improving my performance gives me a
sense of achievement. It also focuses my thoughts into one outlet
and gives me a rest from being busy at home and at work.
5) What do you like best about Bristol?
The diversity of the people and all of the things there are to do.
I love to learn new things so going to activities I've not tried
before and meeting different people really appeals to me. Bristol
is great for this.
6) What would you recommend that people try in the
Try getting out in to Bristol's green spaces - there are many all
over the city. My favourite place to visit is Victoria Park in
South Bristol. It has some great views and the space gives me time
to think and relax.
