I referred myself in order to maintain my well-being and also get used to using computers. I was supported by my recovery worker to find ways I can keep well, using a wellbeing toolkit. This included various things such as my love for German accordion music, and memories of when I was in the army by printing pictures I felt were positive.
We also focused on preparing me for using computers, by joining the library and talking about my mental wellness, so I was ready to join the digital world. At 72 years old, I have now received my first computer certificate through an amazing partnership with Volunteer Action. I am still enrolled for more courses indefinitely and I am looking forward to completing more!
