Ken has been living with crippling depression and anxiety. Finding it difficult to maintain a job, he eventually built up the courage to reach out to The Spiers Centre, Heathridge for help. The team at Spiers referred Ken to a range of services, including Foodbank WA.
“The assistance I get from Foodbank WA helps me in so many ways. Without Foodbank I would have no food in my house. If you don’t have food you are in big trouble. That means the world.”
“You need to ask for help, there is no shame in that. Always ask for help. You have to be kind to yourself.”
He says that having food security and a new found network of friends at his local men’s shed has had a positive impact on his life.
