Becca's Story

The Christmas Challenge means your donation to The Door this Christmas will be matched - doubling the impact for young people like Becca.

"Hi, I'm Becca and I'm 16. About a year ago I was finding life really hard. It felt like there was nowhere safe for me. At one point I thought it would probably just be easier if I wasn't around anymore, I even got to the point of trying to take load of pills but I'm glad now that I didn't go through with it.

From the moment I met Sally, my mentor we just clicked together. She was like a best friend and a mum and a favourite teacher all rolled into one.It was a relief to know there would be someone who wanted to listen to my story, without bringing their own stuff to the conversation.

The Door and Sally have helped me grow so much and I know there's still work to do but I know that with the help of The Door I can grow even more. I'm even looking forward to it!"
