Michael came to Creative Options back in 2014, looking for aid with his own recovery.
Through the support of the Creative Options project, Michael started a ‘W.R.A.P. Peer Support Group’ after he identified a need for more support for people to continue working on their W.R.A.P. (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) after they have completed an initial W.R.A.P. course. This group runs fortnightly as part of Creative Options’ programme. Michael also enjoys a number of activities that the project offers including the 'Make and Mend' sewing project, pottery courses, monthly floristry and the seasonal cookery.
Michael served on the committee and became the chairperson in 2016. He learned committee skills and gained in confidence by running the bi-monthly Member's meetings and the Trustees meetings.
Michael is now the manager of the Creative Options' website.
