Paul’s Story - Change For Me

Paul, 38 from Cheshire had a breakdown which led to two suicide attempts. This had a huge impact on his relationship with his partner, and he needed urgent support.

We helped Paul and his partner with relationship counselling; The LGF provided a safe and positive place for my partner and I to talk and come together. Without the LGF I think the outcome would have been very different.

Paul now wants to help others and has developed ChangeFor, a website for people in Greater Manchester to find the help and support they need. He is also campaigning to get people to speak out about their experience of mental health so public attitudes change for the better.

He’s released music recorded during his illness and is asking for donations. Money raised will be split between The LGF, Samaritans and Mind.
