Recovery stories

Each person we support has a story of strength, struggle and resilience. Here are a few stories from the people we work with.

Amy

'I'm much nicer to myself now. I'm kinder, I'm more understanding that it doesn't matter if I don't have the perfectly cleaned house. I'm worth it, and I'm doing the best that I can.'

'We talk about our health, talk about everything. I get myself to the doctors now, I make sure I take my medication and get my blood tests done every fortnight.'

George

George

‘Recovery for me is a continuing process. It’s a gradual process of accepting yourself, not being too down on yourself. Recovery is wanting to continue life.’

Janette

'I didn't connect a lot with people, and that's probably because of past issues. Helping me connect with other support was the help I needed.'

'It took a lot of the pressure off. It was transformational because at the time I was unemployed and homeless, and it was good to be able to change all that.'
