"I am started to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I am starting a level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!"
