This week sees Linsey Sinclair, Staff Nurse, celebrate 20 years at leading Highland mental health charity, Birchwood Highland.
As part of the charity’s team at Birchwood Highland’s Recovery Centre, Linsey has seen many changes to the provision of support in mental health down the years. Birchwood Highland works to the Recovery model at the Recovery Centre. The only facility of its kind in Scotland, it is home to up to 23 people who are supported to lead rewarding, fulfilling lives, even if their symptoms persist.
Speaking at a party thrown by residents and staff at the Recovery Centre, Linsey said: “As well as the staff here, it’s the people we support that have kept the job interesting, challenging and fun. They mean so much to me and I can’t believe I’ve reached the twenty year mark already!”
