Our impact

Every month at Open Door we shape change through empowerment, culture and opportunity. See each month the impact we’re making across the community.

This month we’ve had some incredible opportunities to share our amazing work on a national reach. This year, we are so pleased to be one of the many charities across the UK that’s being supported by Global’s Make Some Noise. Have a listen below to our appearance on Heart Breakfast with Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston.

Meet the Mentor: Adam

Adam found Open Door a couple of years ago online through do-it.org. He is really interested in psychology and mental health so was really keen to find somewhere to volunteer that combined both of these interests.

“CBT helped me so much in the first few years after my diagnosis, I was already passionate about how much difference it can make to someone’s life”.

Mentoring at Open Door has surpassed Adam’s expectations. Over the last two years, Adam has mentored an incredible 23 members, all of which said that they have benefitted from his support. “Being a mentor feels really satisfying, I feel like the sessions work both ways for mentor and member. As along the way I still see the CBT techniques, whilst helping my member”.
