Tyson was already struggling with depression when he turned to alcohol to cope. But this only resulted in reckless behaviour that ended his relationship with his girlfriend and caused him to lose his job. Tyson began to rely on illicit drugs to get through the day, which alienated his family.
But through the work for the dole program, Tyson was introduced to ADRA. And it was exactly the change he needed in his life. “Working for ADRA has definitely impacted my mental health for the better,” Tyson says. “I feel like I’m a new person.”
For the first time in a long time, Tyson has a future worth looking forward to again.
