"Hi I’m Jaime, I self – identify as queer and have been working with Allsorts for over 13 years!
I’m a trained mental health nurse and I am the specialist LGBT TAPA worker in Brighton and Hove area. I work alongside Allsorts offering specialist support for young people experiencing difficulties with mental health and emotional well being, who also might have difficulties in engaging with mainstream services.
As a TAPA worker I can be really flexible in working with you - I can meet you at home or in the community, removing barriers of mainstream mental health services based in clinical settings.
I can also work with you on a one to one basis to explore any mental health and/ or emotional well being difficulties you might be experiencing and/ or support and help you in accessing more specialist services when required."
