I am an ex-service man. I had PTSD without realising it for years. I was holding down a service management job, but I walked away from my job my family and went to live in the woods. I spent one week in the woods until I ended up knocking on the Harrogate Homeless Project’s hostel door.
The Harrogate Homeless project got medical treatment for me, supported me through my illness and rehomed me. I am now a volunteer at Springboard, the day centre.
