I found myself homeless after escaping an abusive relationship. My mental health was in a terrible state, and I was struggling to deal with all the feelings I had about what had happened to me. Everything changed when I became involved with Turning Tides – I began to feel safe and hopeful for the future.
I don’t remember how long I was homeless; it took me many years to ask for help. But once I went to St Clare’s Hub I soon realised how supportive the staff are there. Now I have a roof over my head and I don’t have to risk my health anymore. I want to share my story so that people can understand and treat us like human beings.
