What Families Say About Us

What service users have to say about our Family and Friends Information Programme



  • We had that testimony from an ex-user which gave you hope!

    Testimony 1
  • “I’ve learnt to ……..do a bit more, go out a bit more, to think about myself a bit more, I’m not that kind of person normally, I don’t think about myself , I think about everybody else. I’ve learnt to try to a enjoy life a bit better.”

    Testimony 2
  • “Learning to accept what you cannot change means that you haven’t got the stress, you sleep better at night.”

    Testimony 3
  • “It was certainly the answer to my prayers”

    Testimony 4
  • “You hear the stories of others stories; you start to understand that you are not the only person that is suffering”

    Testimony 5
  • “You still need that direction; you need somebody from outside your family network to give you that direction,”

    Testimony 6
  • “If you are in a more positive place altogether then it affects all aspects of your life.”

    Testimony 7
  • “I didn’t know how to approach it in a different way, I was doing it in the best way I could and couldn’t understand why I wasn’t getting anywhere and that lead to a lot of problems within the family. The information program helped me to try something new and to understand the impact of my own actions.”

    Testimony 8
  • “It has made an insane world into a sane world, bearable world, I know direction, I have got the tools to deal with life”

    Testimony 9
  • “I learned skills, learning to let go, learning to step back, how to interact to avoid confrontation”

    Testimony 10
  • “Now, we have actually had a united front, and that is the most crucial thing for a family; is that both people have got to be singing off the same hymn sheet.”

    Testimony 11
  • “It has been such a positive experience and it has not only been a positive at home it has actually been more positive at work.”

    Testimony 12
  • “Life is the best it has been in seven years.”

    Testimony 13
  • “I was beside myself and people were saying you need to get educated, you don’t know what you are talking about so that’s why I thought any help, I was desperate for any sort of help to get direction and understanding.”

    Testimony 14
  • “Rome wasn’t built in a day, they didn’t learn the habits of a user overnight and they’re not going to unlearn it overnight”
