Hi <<First Name>>,

 

I hope you are keeping well,

It’s been tough recently, the suicide rate in Scotland is at its highest level in almost 10 years with 833 people taking their own lives in 2019 alone.

 

Tracey (below) was diagnosed with depression in 2012 after having a major breakdown and attempting suicide several times. She has been brave enough to tell you her story...

Support Tracy

"I was diagnosed with depression round about 2012 and was referred for support, unfortunately they didn’t take much time to sit with me and go through things with me. She diagnosed me with being slightly depressed I asked her if there was anybody that could help me.

She then told me about the Morven Centre [CrossReach] and showed me where it was, I walked in and self-referred myself. They opened my eyes and helped me in ways I didn’t know I could be helped.

When I came, I wouldn’t speak to anybody, wouldn’t do anything... until one day I decided to go on a trip that the Centre provide. Because of that I started speaking to other people and they started speaking to me, before you knew it I was involved in stuff around the Centre!
 

“Because the Centre was closed during lockdown we couldn't visit,  I went through a very stressful time  to the point I was ready to take my own life again, but the staff had seen me through it, kept my spirits up and was great. I couldn't fault them in any way.
 
They did that with everyone, made sure we were ok and didn't feel so alone”
 

Tracy, Supporter of CrossReach
