"Before I came to [Aurora Mental Health & Recovery], I was in and out of the hospital every three or four months. I have a son who, at the times, was about nine years old. I was a single parent and when I came to the Center, I had been in the hospital for about a month. I was pretty hopeless. I really didn't see any future for myself. When I came to the Center I got a new therapist and joined a support group. I have gained joint custody of my son with the help of my therapist, and have started making the road back to a meaningful life. It is so different now. I have had a job for 2 12 years. I am a social worker and giving back. I basically have a productive and meaningful life that I didn't have before." -Susan
