When the doctor told me that if my teenage daughter, Issy, took one more overdose she could die, I was immobilised with fear. I wouldn’t let Issy out of my sight, yet I felt very alone and in desperate need of guidance.
A friend introduced me to Sarah, the Carer Coordinator with Jami’s Carer and Family Support service. She listened to me without judgement, understood what I was going through and gave me practical advice and support. She virtually held my hand every step of the way until I felt confident to manage what was happening with Issy. I don’t know how I would have coped without Sarah’s support.
