Quote's of the month

 

Lived Experience Forum: 

“Feeling hopeless can be hard. Life can be hard. But there can be moments of hope and building a life worth living. I'm living proof of that. I try to find once nice thing in my day to hold on to. That might look like doing something nice for myself or better yet doing something for someone else. “

said by @Sans911 to provide support in Better Off With You

 

 

Carers Forum: 

"Having read some of these forums, it is incredible to see the resilience and strength that it must take to assist someone living with a serious mental illness."
