My name is Ola, I am a volunteer with Mind in Bexley as a Mentor

I have been supporting Mentees during this lock down by offering  weekly phone calls, listening and providing practice support. When speaking to Mentees I go through their recovery star with them which really empowers a person and supports individual recovery, this is soothing to them as well as myself. The great thing about talking to my Mentees is that one told me that she’s always looking forward to my call every week. This makes me more determined to progress in this field.

As a volunteer with Mind in Bexley I find this as a great privilege to give back to my community and a career progression.

Thank you MIND IN BEXLEY for giving me this opportunity.
