The staff are lovely and offer support when you need it. if you have a personal issue and need help they help you sort out the issue. They won’t sort them for you but they will support you to help sort things yourself.
I have found the MEE service vital as it fills a needs gap which the local Community Mental Health Team has refused to address. I had been on an 18-month waiting list on the NHS for therapy up to November 2021, after the NHS took an extra 6 months to process the referral I made in April 2022. The therapy the NHS is offering me is a \”skills-based\” therapy, which does not address the root cause of my mental health issues and is simply a band-aid solution. The NHS has refused to provide me with any alternatives. On the other hand, Making Everyone Equal spoke to me as a human being, swiftly arranging a face-to-face appointment. I told the staff about my adverse childhood experiences, as well as my difficulties with CBT and DBT, and they offered me trauma therapy to address the root cause of my mental health issues, exactly what I needed, without me having to argue tooth-and-nail for it. Staff at MEE were kind, understanding and did not judge me. Making Everyone Equal is the best third sector service in West Cumbria for somebody with complex mental issues such as myself.
