Joe, who was long-term unemployed, was referred to Learning Links by the Job Centre after having an assessment for depression.

Joe said, “At first I had no plan, and no idea what I wanted to do. Without taking action through Learning Links I’m sure I would still be in the same situation, only with more months of wasted time behind me.

Joe is now working as an artist, selling canvases and receiving commissions. Joe has found that his depression and self-esteem have both improved and he now feels much more positive about the future.
