Myself and my befriendee have overcome so many obstacles and accomplished so many milestones
I have been a befriender with Mind in Harrow for just over a year now and what a journey it has been. Myself and my befriendee have overcome so many obstacles and accomplished so many milestones, it has been an absolute pleasure throughout. The sense of pride you get from supporting your befriendee towards an improved state of wellbeing as well as the support you get from the team is brilliant. You really feel the importance and necessity of your role in this increasingly connected yet isolated society in supporting those who otherwise wouldn’t get genuine human contact, which is so essential for everyone. The gratification for the both of us has been excellent and I cannot wait to continue our journey and I am excited to see what the future holds for us both!
