"Amazing outcomes from Springboard Day Program"

About: Communify QLD Lives Lived Well

(as a service user),

I had worked at my last job just over a year of night shifts and found myself slowly isolated with depression and unable to unwind and found alcohol helped me get a sleep that lead to heavy alcohol dependency where I crashed and got myself into Royal Brisbane Hospital Detox.

I was introduced to Springboard Day Program from Salvation Army Resident Recovery team and it appeared to be just what I needed. A 6 day week program aimed at addiction & recovery, however what appealed to me most was the mental health avenue of the course. The tools that I have found within, learnt & shared have completely helped my mental (& physical) health to a wonderful new worldview & life. I have achieved amazing personal goals that I feel I had been searching for for my adult life

Sam & Dan ran the course & I cannot say enough how amazing they are with with how caring, understanding, sharing their skills, ideas, personalities ... They are Springboard & I am honoured to have been privileged to have experienced & gained what have today. I feel so happy with myself. This has so eased my depression & anxiety as now I can observe myself in a wonderful new light. with how caring, understanding.

I am writing this here in the hope that this message shines out to people & community of how amazing the course, its structure, care, understanding, content & the outcomes for me!

To achieve some of your personal goals as a result of your engagement in this group process is a big effort.
