I have suffered my whole life with mental health issues. I attended a group run by Suffolk Mind called Waves, which turned my life around completely. I learnt coping mechanisms and strategies, as well as essential life skills to help me manage my life and mental health. With the support from the staff who ran this group I was able to take my childhood abuser to court and had their support throughout the process, despite the fact that I was no longer attending the group.
The work done by Suffolk Mind changes lives! This is why I am doing this challenge. Because I want to give back to the charity that saved my life, and taught me my self worth!! And who continue to make a difference where our NHS system often fails.
