Our daughter was treated out of county for two years and we know how hard it makes it. The Unit is a lifeline for Cornwall's young people in a time of crisis. Outdoor therapy has been show time and again how effective it is in treating mental health conditions. We benefited from the Anchor Fund from the Invictus Trust in our time of crisis and its nice to give a little back. Simon and Colette Beckham x
