Hidden Homelessness - Paddy's Story
Paddy (21) from West Belfast describes the challenges of hidden homelessness and how this can impact upon someone's mental health.
"You feel isolated, you feel alone, even though you may have contact with friends and stuff, it's a surreal feeling. A sense of not belonging anywhere. A sense of hopelessness sometimes. When you are sitting there... and you are on your own, things start to hit you and you realise - ohh what's going on here and you realise this is not what I want, this shouldn't be where I am with my life. It's crap really like."
