Mental Health Support Worker

Hello! My name is Miles and I am Peer Support Worker for Build on Belief at Northwick Park Hospital.

I was very excited to start working for BOB and become a part of the team. I have had my battles with mental health problems in the past and since then studying in the field really started my passion to support individuals that are struggling themselves.

When I graduated from my undergrad I began working in Human Resources however, shortly after I realised sitting behind a computer screen all day doing administrative work was not for me. I wanted work that was more people oriented and to utilise my past experiences to help individuals in need. My passion was the brain and mind and I decided to study a masters in Mental Health.

After my masters I worked at a Primary School as a Special Education Needs teacher supporting children with an array of needs such as mental health, autism and ADHD. After around 6 months I wanted a slight career change to focus more on mental health, specifically addiction. This area was of great importance to me due to a family member of mine struggling with addiction problems in the past. I came across BOB and was in favour of working on the mental health ward and the opportunities it provides to service users.

Thank you all for being so welcoming already, I cannot wait to get stuck in and meet the rest of the BOB community!
