Mental Health: Davids story

David talks about his 50 years as a mental health service user and his journey towards recovery. He outlines changes in treatment regimens over the years and how he has gone from an “overkill of care” to his present care package with Mental Health Concern.

He is currently living in supported housing in the local community and has been supported to live independently. This is made possible by the support and attention of Nurses who visit David three to four times a week to ensure that he’s coping and has everything he needs for daily living.

David feels that you need people around you as it’s not good for your mental health being on your own. David outlines how he feels he has matured over the years and feels he has got better with age and feels as though he is through the worst.
