Welcome to the forums, we’re so glad to have you here with us.
Firstly, I would like to acknowledge the efforts you have been making for your family and am so happy you are receiving support for your own mental health issues. Being open about your mental health is unfortunately still sometimes stigmatised, so I want to commend you for your courage in recognising the importance of your own wellness and having the strength to ask for help and support.
I am so sorry that you have been going through such hard times with your son. I hear that this is an issue that you’ve tried to get support with previously. From the worker you spoke to, would you know if there are any additional resources they could refer you to? They may know of more services or resources in your area.
I hope other members will pop in here and be able to provide their insights and advice as their experiences may be insightful.

Not quite sure what to say. You're going through so much and it's been such a long journey. Yet, you've kept going, persevered and tried to make the best of a difficult situation and get your son on track. I was wondering whether some support for families of alcoholics might be helpful and to share with some other mums in your situation and to get some really solid family support, Maybe you could get some local contacts from Reachout staff. Try to find some way of relaxing yourself, even if it's only a moment for a cup of tea. Trying to recharge with so much doing on is challenging but something to work towards. Thinking of you.
