My name is Claire and I have founded an organisation to assist fellow mental health sufferers to train their dogs (subject to suitability tests) to become assistance dogs.
My fist dog Minxer who died in 2005 was my inspiration for this organisation and she saved me from myself so many times. When she died I was determined to do something to help others. Since 05, I have got 3 more dogs, all SBTs and Tilli has shown the exact qualites Minxer did. She keeps me focused and makes me get on with life as well as breaking my manic cycles.
I started this organisation in 05 and finally went public with it in 2011. I hope the organisation I have created can maybe help people here on BDT with their conditions. If you would like info please go to www.mentalhealthdogs.org.uk
where we can hopefully help you.
Look forward to helping some of you x
