How I got involved with the PSS Wellbeing Centres and Upbeat 

I originally got involved with PSS about 10 years ago when my mental health problems were at an all-time low. I’ve always had mental health issues that have affected me my whole life. For many years, the doctors were issuing me with medication until a wonderful young doctor sent me to a physiatrist and to Inclusion Matters. Inclusion Matters sent me to PSS who were wonderful; they treated me like a person rather than a patient. It took time, but with the brilliant help from staff, I started joining groups within PSS The change in me was huge; I started feeling more confident and tried different activities. Once I started to believe in myself, my whole life changed - PSS Wellbeing Centres saved my life. My children were amazed at the change, which I feel also changed their lives.

Why I’m upbeat about Upbeat!

I’m a volunteer with Upbeat as I would love people to get help with wellbeing at an earlier stage. I was told to pull myself together and get a grip, so I knuckled down and did what everybody else wanted me to do, which made me miserable.If you get time to look at Upbeat, you’ll find ways to change your life, a small step at a time. Life can definitely be better.

What I’d pack in my self-care suitcase
