    Story

    Ella was a bright , fun loving 16 year old who had a passion for life. She loved doing things with her family and friends. She was bubbly and full of enthusiasm for life.
    About 18 months ago that all changed.
    She became withdrawn and saw dark things every where. She began hearing voices that told her that people wanted to hurt her.
    She became paranoid and couldn't cope being around people. She began to hurt herself and her mum took her to get the help she needed. As time passed she was diagnosed with Psychosis, a devastating mental illness that totally destroyed both her and her life.
    Ella was sectioned and went to Plymbridge House in Plymouth for 5 months to help balance her medication. She was close enough that here family and friends were able to visit several times a week.
    When Ella was discharged it very quickly became obvious that she was no better and couldn't cope at home.
    After a serious incident Ella was sectioned again and taken to Longreach and held on an adult ward until a bed in a secure unit for young people became available.
    When it did it was in Hertfordshire 300 miles away from her family and friends, whose love and support she desperately needs to recover.
    Her family are torn, needing to be here for Ella.'s siblings but needing to be there for her to.
    Mental health especially in Cornwall is so very poorly funded. There's a lack of Counsellors, Nurses and Beds in the County. Ella is lucky that she's receiving help, many youngsters are still waiting. Lost in very dark places
    I am hoping you will be moved to help them fund the 5hr trips to visit her at least once a week so they can give their wonderful daughter the support she desperately needs to be able to come back to her family ; her friends and her life.

    Thank you

      Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who has donated. We're very close to our target now. Secondly to keep you all updated about Ella. I am very pleased to tell you that Ella moved to Newton Abbot, 93 miles away from home. Every step closer to home helps both Ella and her family. Also Ella knows one of the other girls in the hospital and a familiar friendly face is just what she needs. We still need to reach our target to help support Ellas family in helping her to get well and be able to come home. Thank you all so much xxx

      Best wishes, I hope all goes well. It's heartbreaking to see someone so young coping with mental health. As mentioned it's a struggle with lack of councillors and funding.

    I have known Ella since she was 3 years old. She was a gorgeous little girl. All through the years I have watched grow into a beautiful, kind hearted person, who would do anything to help any of her friends and family. It is devasting to she the lost soul she has morphed into.
