Welcome to the Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast!
In this episode, Working for Recovery, our hosts Dr. Peter Bagshaw and Dr. Andrew Tresidder are joined by Sue Newell and Jo Moore from Somerset Foundation Trust’s Mental Health Employment Service to discuss what the service does to support people in Somerset, why employment can help to support the recovery process and how people can access the service when they need it.
The SEW podcast is a free weekly show hosted by Dr. Andrew Tresidder and Dr. Peter Bagshaw. In each episode, the doctors discuss a different topic related to mental and emotional wellbeing and often invite expert guests to join them in conversation. The show is aimed at the people of Somerset and beyond; the advice and guidance provided should apply to anybody who needs it, whenever they need it.
All episodes of SEW are now available to listen to free through Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Deezer, Google Podcasts, Amazon Podcasts, Somerset Emotional Wellbeing or wherever you get your podcasts!
