Case Study

KP is a 46-year-old Indian lady who has had a troubled life with family problems and alcohol dependency.

Her family tried to force her to marry in India but failed due to a forced marriage court order. She suffered depression after the death of her boyfriend and moved into supported housing.

With the support of Reach staff and her sister, who is her appointee, she has made amazing progress.

KP isn’t drinking much, is in control of her medication, manages her finances and keeps on top of household chores. We are very proud of the remarkable steps she is taking. She is very happy now and is looking forward to a family visit to India in October.
