A few months ago, Ben was contemplating suicide. He had managed to leave the mental health unit without anyone realising and was in a desperate state. For years he had struggled with drugs, alcohol and mental health issues. Fortunately he was found just before he was able to do anything and safely returned to the hospital. The lady who found him put a trypraying booklet in his pocket as he got into the ambulance. Ben started to read the book with a nurse who happened to be a Christian. After a couple of days Ben announced he wanted help with rehabilitation and wished to be transferred to a specialist clinic. Within a week he was transferred.
Ben is now drug and alcohol free without having had any withdrawal symptoms and now regularly attends church. He still reads his trypraying book.
