"I was welcomed into the Widening Horizon's group"

(as a service user),

I was welcomed into the group well and now I have settled in. We did art class and I drew a picture of some ancient Egyptians and painted the picture.

I am also looking forward to doing some conservation work that is held on a Wednesday.

I am not living in hospital anymore, now I live in an open care home although I did not mind being in hospital.

I think that anyone who is in care from mental health wards/units should be given the chance to join the group. As any user/exuser of drug or alcohol will tell you, the more spare time a person has, the more likely to abuse substances.
