"A bit of hope creeps in through the darkness"

About: Eastern Health

(as the patient),

My case manager, Leanne has saved my life more times than one. I have so much respect and admiration for her. She is passionate about her job and also really cares and listens.

Living with a mental illness is a challenging life and every day can be full of darkness but whenever I see Leanne, I feel a bit brighter and a bit of hope creeps in through the darkness. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done to help me get through this.

Your reference to "the darkness" is a reminder to all of what people may be feeling underneath the surface.

I will take great pleasure in sharing your story with Leanne and her managers and I hope that you continue to receive all the care and support you need.

In the meantime, take care. Kind regards, Alan Lilly
