I started coming to the Crisis women’s group. Getting up, getting dressed, coming to a group, meeting other people – it made a massive difference. When you haven’t been working and haven’t been studying or been doing anything academic – it’s amazing the things that you lose. Crisis has given me so much strength and I believe in myself. I’ve never believed in myself. I tell everyone: “Go to Crisis”. I carry the timetables in my bag and hand them out – because I know it works. Malindie, Coventry
