Helping ourselves

We believe that ultimately we each have to make our own  journey towards recovery and a better life, even though that may well involve support from others at different times.

We have many suggestions for ways we can help ourselves on that journey, in our

For Ourselves posts.

And we have a variety of suggestions for families, friends and supporters in our

As Supporters posts.
