“After struggling with my mental health I decided to join Cyfle Cymru. I was introduced to my Peer Mentor Owain. I needed help with looking for work, training and volunteering to occupy my time.
Since joining Cyfle Cymru, I have been attending courses to better my education, I also have been keen to do the Volunteer Days monthly as I enjoy them and meeting new people. For the past few months I have been attending various courses to help with my depression and anxiety. I have also attended the Walking Groups as a way of getting out and interacting with other clients in a similar position.
I’m thankful for this opportunity and feel like I have come a long way in the last few months in my recovery and look forward to carry on Cyfle Cymru.”
