I live in medium support where I receive the required assistance to lead a fulfilling life.
I am up early most days and out to do various activities including teaching chess at my mental health outreach centre. I am a keen chess player and compete in tournaments most weeks.
I was a science and maths teacher in my younger days however my mental illnesses disrupted my career and whilst I am now of retiring age, I would still like to give back to the community.
My daily supports assist me to manage my health concerns and allow me to stay socially connected to my community which includes my church and chess club. I have serval really good friends at ICLA and we often go on train trips away, all with the confidence that we are well supported to maintain our wellbeing.
