I moved to the newstead area in 2014, not knowing anybody in the area and suffering from depression in a very difficult family situation I was crying out for help.
I was seeking help through my gp for my depression but I wasn't until the MASH team contacted me and asked me if I needed any help myself....I said YES and was referred to sure start.
I was given so much support through the last year, attending groups, support worker coming to see me at home. Something as little as having someone just listen to my problems helped me to get better and regain my confidence.
I am now giving back to the community by volunteering for sure start, attending college courses and looking forward to my future, thanks to the support of sure start.
