About two months ago, my therapist Tom, who is helping me with my depression and anxiety, suggested that I get in touch with an organisation called the LGBT Foundation in Manchester (lgbt.foundation). After meeting with them and seeing everything that they had to offer, I’ve signed up to take part in their Befriending Scheme. This video blog is the first in what will be a series showing what I get up to on the scheme and how, hopefully, it benefits me.
You can find out more about the LGBT Foundation, who offer support to and advocate on behalf of LGBT people in Greater Manchester, on their website lgbt.foundation. The befriending scheme is covered in more detail at: http://lgbt.foundation/get-support/befrienders/.
