Jonathan is 30 and lives in a flat on his own – his family live in a different county and though he has ongoing anxiety and depression he is not receiving help from local services as his needs are not
deemed to be sufficiently severe. However, going out on his own, even to his local park, would be overwhelming for him. So we know he has been out very little unless he is desperate for shopping.
Jonathan’s sense of isolation has increased and his mood deteriorated. He tells us he longs to be back in the safety of the garden feeling productive.
