Young people say
“For me Catch22 is the one thing that has helped me.”
“I feel like I have 100% ownership over my treatment. My support worker is great and I have a really good relationship with her. Catch22 has really helped me turn my life around.
“I learned so much about myself through having the support with Catch22. My worker and I talked about what I have been going through he listened to me and never judged me; it was a safe place for me to really talk about how I was feeling. He made me feel that I was worth so much more than I thought I was at this time of my life. …..I now have a plan for my future and I am going onto college in September to study health and social care. I hope to fulfil my dreams of travelling and to become a psychiatrist”
