"Different way forward"

About: Ashley House

(as a service user),

Initially I was referred to Ashley House by the police - who found me collapsed on the street. I would normally run a mile from support groups of all kinds, I have always done this.

I have, what I consider to be, a complex lot of problems, and I had no escape or outlet for these.

Attending the group has made me confront life, the friendship and camaraderie from some very generous people makes me feel as though oblivion is not the only way forward.
