Special recognition

Winner:

Tanya Biebuyck, community psychiatric nurse

Nominations for Community Psychiatric Nurse Tanya were numerous, each outlining her dedication, high level of care and compassion.

Tanya has worked with mental health patients for many years and has not only inspired colleagues, but made a difference to the lives of many people who have faced trauma, severe mental health issues and stigma.

Several of the nominations mentioned a pregnant woman Tanya was working with, who was at risk of re-admission and further mental health problems, but with Tanya’s intervention, a multi-disciplinary care package and daily visits, the mother, father and child are now flourishing together.

She is also involved with the Tilt Project, a 24-hour staffed hostel for patients moving into the community from secure psychiatric services and is a partnership between Bridge and Oxleas.
