    I lost 16 years of my life to the menatal health system and high doses of medications.. With a fantastic therapist, supportive, trusted friends and an understanding psychiatrist I came off medications. I then went to university, passed my course with a merit and am a qualified counsellor, people wrote me off, now look at me, I emerged proud 🙂

    Hi Donna, I feel a sense of empowerment and empathic resonance hearing your story. I would like to share something with you. I had a crisis that unexpectedly led to me going to university. I passed my course with a merit. Also one day I would like to qualify as a counsellor too. It would be fantastic if you came along to one of the Emerging Proud events on 12th May. Either as a volunteer or an attendee. At last year’s Emerging Proud event I met some of the most inspirational people I’ve ever met. Also there are people I met on that day or in connection with that day that I’m still in contact with today.
