Introducing... Katie

Peer mentor with the Substance Misuse Service.

Introducing... Katie

‘’My name is Katie, I am a full time single mother to my beautiful daughter who is now 1 year old.

I have been in recovery for just over 4 years now, my addiction was heroin.

I spend a lot of my time with my daughter, taking care of her and doing activities, getting out to baby groups.

In my other spare time I volunteer for First Contact Clinical as a peer mentor, which I have been doing since November last year.

Being a peer mentor has given me something outside of a mother which I really enjoy, it also gives me a chance to give back and try make a difference!’’
