    Hello, my name is Alfie and I want to write this to let you all know that recovery is possible...

    So when I was at my worst, I was being abused, I was suicidal, I was self harming, I had problems sleeping, I had problems eating, my anxiety was at it worst to the point that I started isolating myself from all my friends and family and my concentration in school got to the point where I couldn't focus on anything, even the subjects I was best at and has the most fun doing! I was on a downwards spiral. What ever made me go and get help I'll never know, but all in secret from everybody, I went to the doctors on my own, and had basically said to them that I wanted to kill myself, they knew I was serious...

    After a few doctors appointments, I was told that I probably was going to be referred to CAMHS (A mental health service for children and adolescents/teens) And with in a matter of days, social services took me away from "home" and I was moved to live with my dad. I was so glad. But I knew I needed help with school...

    So I went to the school nurse and said a lot like what I said to my doctor, I'm not gunna say where it was I went to get in school to get help but they helped the most as I basically had the things which CAMHS to but in school. Every. Single. Day. That was when recovery truly started for me...

    Now I'm many months clean of self harm. I have no words to describe how much my mental health has improved and I can genuinely say that I see a point in living meaning I'm not suicidal...

    I never want anyone to feel the way that I did, there is ALWAYS help. If you don't know where to get help from, I highly recommend Childline. Please If your feeling not so well seek help, you matter! "Once you truly start believing things can get better, your half way there."
