" I now see there is no wrong path only wrong choices"

About: Compass York / Compass One

(as a service user),

I started using Compass about 2 months ago. I was borderline suicidal because of debt, life, money and drug use (cannabis). Since seeing Compass I think I have come along way, I am a regular user of the acupuncture which has been very useful for stress. Compass is very helpful and resourceful which you don’t see a lot of these days.

I know I have a long way to go before I can change my life for the better but with the help of this service I am sure I will do it, if one thing should be changed then there should be more places like this.

I find it very stressful, belittling and humiliating trying to explain the feeling to a doctor or nurse that you want to end your own life. If there was a bit more understanding of what has happened to someone to lead them down, what some would call the wrong path this would make things better, I now see there is no wrong path only wrong choices.

As far as I am concerned I have made a lot of wrong choices but with this help now I am sure I am going to make good choices from now on and be a healthier and also a better person.
