Patricia turned to North West Simon Community in Sligo when her finances became chaotic. She was in rent arrears with her landlord and as a result of the stress had a breakdown. Her cheerful façade masked a deep inner pain. A North West Simon Outreach Worker helped Patricia see a way forward. Patricia was lonely and isolated, but with the support of North West Simon, she is now doing a gardening course getting counselling, and support with money management. These supports have helped turned her life around and restored her mental health.
North West Simon Community never give up on anyone. Patricia said she had nowhere else to turn, she couldn’t cope and North West Simon Community supported her.
