Introducing Lydia, our newest team member

Hi, I’m Lydia

I’m very excited to be joining The Tomorrow Project as the new suicide crisis support officer.

I’ve got a varied background stemming from qualifying as a chef when I first left school to working with some beautiful people with learning difficulties, autism, dementia, delirium or personality disorders. I believe this has allowed me to gain a very person centred approach and has provided me with a vast knowledge of differing areas. I feel I can bring a lot of knowledge to the team and can’t wait to start making a difference.

Although it is only my second week, I have already had the pleasure of observing client sessions and seeing first hand some of the amazing work being done here at Harmless and The Tomorrow Project.

I’ve also attended my first conference, From Harm to Hope, which Harmless hosted last Friday with the focus on female suicide. I got to meet a variety of incredible individuals and learn about the work they are doing to better the world. One of my favourite workshops of the day was by Lisa Carter on perinatal mental health, this sparked a keen interest in the area for me.

I feel honoured to be part of such an amazing team and I am so excited to progress with them.
