Ashlee was introduced to her Local Area Coordinator Frank by her GP, initially to explore ways she could improve in her mental health. As their relationship developed and trust was built, it became clear that underlying pressures around money and housing were causing her to feel unwell.
Over time, Ashlee felt comfortable enough to open up to Frank, and with him alongside her she was able to unpick these issues and put plans in place to prevent further ones from occurring too.
At one point in the video, Ashlee reflects on where she might have been if she hadn’t met Frank, saying “I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today […] I would be homeless by now”. Thanks to www.curlewfilms.com for producing the video.
