The Employment Advisory Service provided by Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is a great example of how integrated mental health care can help people achieve their goals in life.

This service helps patients with mental health issues such as depression or anxiety keep or find a job. Alongside psychological therapy, it provides practical advice and interventions to avoid long-term employment, or find a new career path. The service has demonstrated great results since its opening in 2017, with 100 people being supported to gain or sustain employment in its first three months.
