T’s Story

T has turned his life around since becoming a customer Look Ahead's Tower Hamlets Mental Health Services.

Before I came to Look Ahead, I was in a very bad way. My Mum threw me out of the house when I was 13, and I went into care. My situation got worse, and I ended up homeless, addicted to drugs and was self-harming.

It’s been a long journey, but thankfully I’ve been able to turn my life around here at Look Ahead. My support worker is great. Look Ahead has helped me to stop misusing drugs and look after my mental health better as I have schizophrenia and hear voices.

My support worker has really helped me to manage my appointments and my money too. I’ve come so far, and am preparing to move on. I’m moving to a flat of my own soon, I feel so excited.
