I first discovered Manor and Castle Development Trust after being extremely unwell with my mental health.
I had struggled with my mental health since my late teens, before being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in my late 20’s. I continued to have the highs and lows, which got increasingly worse and I reached rock bottom in my mid-30’s. Luckily at this point I got the NHS care I needed.
Every part of my life though, had already been affected and I was quite broken. I wanted to do more to help myself. I wasn’t working or volunteering at the time, and at this point I had such low confidence! I needed to do something about it.
