“Having the support of MYMY really helped my mental health to improve and supported me to focus on rebuilding relationships with myself and others.”
This client contacted MYMY after hearing how the charity’s support had helped another man in his community. Following a cancer diagnosis, he has recovered well physically but the shock, time of work and loss of identity created some challenges for his mental health. He described it as a darkness, feeling alone even with other people in the room.
Counselling support enabled him to develop tips and skills to work through the challenges, build his confidence and self esteem. He talked to other men about what he was going through, encouraging them to seek help and he enjoyed volunteering to raise funds for MYMY, giving back for the difference that the charity made in his life.
