Coping With Life

Coping With Life Participant Views

“I came on the workshops for support to help me gain knowledge and to have a better understanding and to have a reason to come out socially, which for me personally helped to get me out of bed really.

I came along on a day when I felt suicidal as I suffer with depression and it comes on me suddenly.  I called to the Health Park to see my GP that particular day, but it was only through taking part in the Workshop that the Crisis Team were then at hand to advise me, my medication was changed and an appointment has been chased up to see a professional. Only through coming along to the Workshop at this time helped save me.

I hope that the Workshops are well publicised, as I think that a lot of people would benefit as there are thousands of people suffering in silence”.
