George (not his real name), has had depression and anxiety since he was 13.
Unfortunately George, now 18, has had no support from hisfamily since becoming ill as “they do not believe in the existence of mental illness”.
To read how George has coped through the years and how the Powys-based Small Steps’ project, run by Hafal in partnership with local charity Rekindle, has helped him on his journey towards recovery please visit the Hub at the website address above.
