    Afternoon @Agnia,

    I'm sorry to hear you're still having issues with your neighbour. Did you contact the police about them trying to get inside your home? I know you've been advised to before, but have you begun keeping a record of these incidents with your neighbour?

    I'm glad to read you are reaching out to Samaritans when you feel you need to, they are an excellent resource. Have we mentioned Side by Side to you before? It might be a good place for you to talk about your mental health and get more support.

    Hi Adrian , thank you for writing to me , no i didn’t call the police i was so scared in shock 
    yes i was calling Samaritans because i was feeling really unwell here 
    thank you for side by side 
    i really don’t know why people are behaving like this why they slamming the door very loudly and shouting at the communal stairs and area it’s really affecting me 
    they were trying to put the key inside my lock when i didn’t open the door 
    i feel very sorry for all the people who struggle with housing and they are affected by neighbors behaving i know how does it  affect mental health and well-being

    If this was an attempt at a break-in or to damage property lived in by yourself, you are within your rights to call the police
