    Best of luck with this. I think the concept is absolutely brilliant. I've known people in these situations and unfortunately some are no longer here due to things getting too much. You always wish you could have done more to help theim before its too late but sometimes people may show little signs of whats really going on. I can only imagine it as being a living hell for them.

    Help support this cause JDMST, even if its sharing amongst your facebook friends, you never know who may see it and benefit hugely from it!!!
