A safe environment to share experiences, reduce isolation, improve coping strategies by learning from others and receive emotional support.
Just a few quotes from some of our happy Facebook members:
“Hiya! Without this site I would have been lost to depression and self pity! I don’t post often but I do read when I can and everyone has helped so much. It’s been over four years now since my strokes and I still read stuff most days xx”
“This group is amazing , you all help and spur each other on and you should be proud of yourselves as i am proud to be part of it x”
“To have so much support from other survivors is incredible.”
“As my husbands carer I find this support group invaluable. Well done DS ”
“know I would not be here today if it wasn’t for the support from DS, as I would have given up the fight, but DS helped me through the loneliest and hardest times, when nobody else understood ”
