Integrated care: support seeking behaviour

What do people experience when they're in need of support? What actions do they take? What doubts do they feel? We’d like to introduce you to four very different persons, all in need of some help. Some more than others, but all would like to feel better in the end.

A man who wants to make a change Liam is an executive manager at a large multinational company. He is under a lot of pressure at work and has recently divorced his wife who is now the main carer for their four-year-old. Liam is experiencing insomnia and has started to drink more. He feels like he needs to make a change but doesn’t really know how.

A young man, who has been diagnosed with OCD Jamal has been diagnosed with OCD in the past. Due to failing his exams he started to feel anxious again. Obsessive thoughts keep him awake at night. Jamal washes his hands repetitively. His parents are worried and recognise the pattern. He wants to get better but wants to do it on his own.
