Attending the peer-support group gave me the courage to speak out, as I knew we had all faced major life challenges at some stage
Learning from others in the peer support group about what happens physically in the brain when you have experienced extreme fear, really helped me to understand why I was feeling the way I was

I’ve been very lucky to have been supported by Veritas, not everybody can understand what it is like to be stalked, I am hugely grateful
