I attend the Living Skills program at MDS. Before I started the Living Skills Program, I was really scared & nervous to use public transport, as it was not something I had done before.
The Living Skills staff helped me to understand all the steps of catching a bus including which bus stop to wait at; how to top up my Opal Card and strategies to use, to help with my anxiety.
These days I am confident to catch the bus and train with staff support. I am proud of this achievement.
The Living Skills program has also helped me to feel confident in going into shopping centres. I was not able to do this before, but now I can comfortably go to the shops with my Mum and not feel so anxious.
