As a young girl I experienced a very traumatic experience, destroying my childhood. At the time my dad had cancer and my nanny died which I was unfortunate enough to witness.

As a result I started participating in risky behaviour, including the use of heavy drugs and drinking. I couldn’t tell my mum what I was doing because she was grieving for her mum and caring for my dad. it wasn’t until I met my husband at 18 that I learnt to talk a little about how I felt and what I was doing.

Now as a grown woman, wife and mother I realise it’s ok to talk even if you’re scared and feel alone. Talking doesn’t mean sharing your problems, it can simply just be feeling like you have a friend, someone you trust. As a result I volunteer for Mind in West Essex as a befriender. This is my opportunity to make sure that people like me who felt there was no one and have no friends to be able to continue to use a service so they do not feel so isolated and alone.

Please join us and give generously if you can.
