Vee turns her challenges into support for others
Vee had been struggling with mental health issues for most of her youth. She felt like she didn’t fit in. She was skipping school due to her struggles with drugs and alcohol and was even hospitalised with self-harm injuries.
A social worker put Vee in touch with Life Without Barriers’ Ngatti House which provides community-based homeless youth services to young people.
Having successfully completed her time at Ngatti House, Life Without Barriers helped Vee transition into permanent housing with Housing Choices WA, where she still lives today.
Vee is now working with RUAH community services to support other people with similar experiences.
