I spent 2 years in the rehab high dependency unit at Tameside Hospital. They took really good care of me. They had to get medication balanced. I suffered from schizophrenia and severe mental health problems. I am very happy with treatment. I am able to live a normal life now. I don’t have any symptoms of mental health issues now due to great medication.

I used to take illegal drugs but don’t do any of that now.
