    Thank you for introducing me to this group. I am looking forward to getting to know people in the community. And also using the advise and support section. I was with the Richmond Fellowship community floating support and found them great, but they are not in my area anymore.  Another group took over but they were not very good and floated me off within 6 months.

    Hello @Cutelady60   Thank you for reply, sorry to hear about Richmond Fellowship.

    I am afraid that is happening more and more getting problems with funding and budgets means many charities are struggling.

    Understand if you having problems accessing mental health support see the other links or discuss with your Doctor.

    I am happy to help you , If I can.  One other point might be local mental health charities on line local to you. Small ones.

    Unfortunately the other problems with mental health charities is the amount of people needing help.

    So evaluated clientele if they think you have recovered enough very can cope they have to make a choice.

    I had this several times.

    One thing is good to learn, be educated have some knowledge to cope.

    Please if I can help further please get in touch.

    Happy to be supportive.

    Pleasure to meet you.

    Please take care.
