I am leaving the Therapeutic Community at The Mandala Centre in the next few weeks. Part of me is apprehensive but part of me is excited as I am getting my life back on track.
The turning point came a couple of months ago. Going to the involvement showcase at Trent Vineyard in Nottingham was an amazing day. I was daunted when I walked in not expecting such a huge event.There was not the stigma I have experienced in other places. I came back inspired having picked up a lot of information about volunteering. I felt the support being offered via involvement is different. ...I felt I was understood .
Nigel moved me to tears in his presentation when talking about how he was feeling on the day. He was someone who had been through mental health services and come out the other side as an employee of the Trust. This story was incredibly powerful.
The trust is obviously open to holistic therapies. It not about just volunteering it is about expanding your whole life. This was the message I took away and the volunteering that is being done is brilliant
I can't thank you enough
