"Looking forward to a bright future for myself and my son"

About: Lives Lived Well

(as the patient),

Last year was a very dark place for my son and me, we had lost a lot and had gone through a lot of heartache. Myself included, I had gone through a violent divorce and had dealt with a lot from my father mentally and physically while being his carer. I had a bad dependency on pot and felt like it was the only thing that kept me happy. My son had started on a path that was destructive to his life but also to his education. After my first visit with Lives Lived Well I had a better understanding of what I needed to accomplish with myself but also with my son. They have helped us so much in so many different ways. I feel like they care and give great advice and support xx I don't know where I would be without the help that has been given. I find all the staff to have amazing attitudes without ever feeling judged with the past actions of my life. I am so grateful with everything and everyone: ) and look forward to a bright future for myself and my son. Thank you to everyone who has stood by me an my son. Forever in you're debt xxx

Dear Tuzzie,

As someone who has managed domestic and family violence services I have some insight into the struggle you would have undergone. And as you say it isn't just for you it's also for your son. And it takes courage to leave - well done.

I know, work with and supervise many of the senior staff and I know exactly what you mean - they are good, caring people who do the job because it is "in them" to do it.

I know they will greatly appreciate and be inspired by your comments - I know I am as clinical director.

Many thanks for taking the time to write.

All the best
