In the last issue we included a report on the ‘Strategies for Living’ research done by Alison Faulkner and her colleagues at the Mental Health Foundation. This found that many service users are turning to self‐help and complementary therapies to improve their sense of wellbeing and find a spiritual dimension to life. Many people have mental ill health triggered by and interwoven with terrible life events, which they struggle to make sense of and cope with. Our survivor contributor has such a story and has found hope, meaning and purpose in ‘alternative’ or complementary therapies. Her ambition is to help others find ways of improving the quality of their lives in ways that are not generally available in mainstream mental health services.
