“Langley has helped me every step of the way. I’m quite looking forward to the future to be honest.
My life imploded when I was 25. For years before that I’d struggled with mental health issues but I didn’t really understand where it had come from.
I had this massive depression and that’s when I got into heroin addiction and crime. I didn’t want to be there, I didn’t feel like I was a person. I didn’t know who I was.
I managed to do rehab and lost like three stone… I’m off the drugs now. I’m looking at work experience too – even maybe set up my own business.
If you’d have asked me two years ago if I thought I’d be close to where I am now I would have laughed at you – or cried.
What does Langley mean to me? It’s a great breathing space where you can get away from issues and get your head straight.”
