It has been a long journey for Doris. She began with Personal Helpers and Mentors (Phams) at the end of last year and engaged with Chorus for the first time. She has made remarkable progress in her mental health recovery.

A big step for Doris was engaging with Transpersonal Art Therapy through Chorus. Doris acknowledged the benefits from the therapy group and how it has helped her work through other areas of her recovery goals.

“With continued support Doris found the courage to engage with other community groups in areas of interest and today nobody could wipe the smile off her face when she decided to purchase a new bike to access the Community Garden, her local church and to visit friends, who have become much needed supports to get her through the hard times,” added Ann-Marie.

Doris couldn’t wait to test out her new bike.
