"I have been in and out of Basildon Mental Health unit for many years, I practically lived in the doctors office. I thought there was no other options, I thought these were my only options. It was a vicious circle with no change. And then I heard about Motivated Minds. There has been times where I have been close to going back to the mental health ward, but now I have a support system which is a phone call or visit away. I now feel supported and listened too and I am building a tool-kit with Motivated Minds to help me grow."
