#5in5 - Five Recovery Stories in 5 Days - Day 3

Five Recovery Stories in 5 Days
National Mental Health Week - May 4 - 10
Mental Illness Is Only One Part Of My Life, Not My Life


I have experienced a lot of things in my life and because of this I want to help others by sharing my story of recovery and rehabilitation.

From as early as I can remember, family has been a big part of my life. Growing up in London with my three brothers, I remember that my family was very open-minded and taught us to see each experience as an opportunity for growth. I have embraced this idea and I want to pass it along to others that I meet on my journey. When I see others succeed, it gives me a good feeling. I am always encouraging people to go higher, while also challenging myself to do better.
