Setting goals & gaining confidence

My sister and mother passed away when I was young. I feel suicidal sometimes, which I think relates back to this. It happens about once every two years and happens really quickly. I can’t explain it but I feel like there is nothing left to do in my life. Last month I felt suicidal and went to my GP, she sent me to A&E. I saw the Psychiatric Consultant and they suggested coming to the Sanctuary. I thought I should give it a try.

To be honest what I got from the Sanctuary was over and above what I was expecting. Interaction with other people has been great. Playing cards, speaking to people, watching football. Being out in the evening rather than being at home.
I have started setting little goals, things that are achievable, small things like listening to music has really helped. It has stopped me seeing the whole future as bleak.

Sanctuary is a very relaxing place to come to. It has a really good team of people and we work as a team to support each other. Almost everyone has felt suicidal. It wasn’t what I was expecting.  You can’t always see the pain, but you can relate to each other’s stories and see how people deal with things in different ways. I have gained confidence coming here.
