I have wanted to become involved with the community in Barry and mental health for a long time.
I have been lucky enough to get this opportunity and want to take full advantage. As a sufferer of mental health I understand how difficult it is to get help and the right help. This centre focuses on positivity, togetherness and community commitment. It will help men, women and children, and reduce isolation and loneliness.
The aim and commitment is to be able to have an open community centre that helps all and understand individuals.
I am proud to be a part of what I believe will be a founding step towards a different way of helping the community and a way of coming together under one roof to support each other.
I will use my experience, troubles, happy times and not to happy to help, relate and understand what can be done to provide a service that Barry needs.
