Sabrina’s Story – Mental Health
Sabrina started her journey toward mental health recovery with AccessCNY four years ago. In that time, she will be the first to tell you she has made huge progress. Diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, a mood disorder and Dyslexia; Sabrina wanted to go back to school. Now in her late twenties, she continues working toward the completion of her degree.
Thanks to staff support from people like Denise in Supported Education, Sabrina has been able to register for classes, connect with supportive educational resources and navigate what can be a confusing and stressful system.
“I wouldn’t be in college without Denise,” Sabrina says.
In her time working with AccessCNY, Sabrina has also used Community Support Services. For her, success means getting out into the community despite her mental health barriers. She attends yoga each Thursday and a coffee hour each month at Provisions Bakery, also an AccessCNY program.
Sabrina has made great progress in socialization, education and life skills learned through her work with Community Support Services. “AccessCNY staff are so willing to work with you and stick with you until you meet your goals.”
