Before I started the Care Coordination program, my life was a mess.
I used drugs, gambled my money, had nowhere to live and suffered from depression and anxiety.
I started the program ten months ago.
Since then things have improved heaps as a result of the support I got from my worker.
I have somewhere secure to live, I’ve reduced drugs and gambling and I’ve got a more optimistic outlook on life.
