Since I joined Facebook, I've learned that there is a wide world out there full of people struggling just like I am. I am not alone. The mental health support I've received from friends and organizations has been invaluable. One of those organizations is 5 Quid for Life . While they aren't able to help me directly since I'm in the US, I consider many of their members friends and an important part of my support network.
"5 Quid for Life is a small charitable trust which provides financial support to people with mental health problems who have lost their benefits as a result of the UK government's welfare reforms." This is a fantastic group of volunteers who believe "that mentally ill people should receive the same respect and treatment as anybody else."
