    Next Steps
"The mental health community, in particular Crocus Co-op, helped me to understand that social relationships are important, any kind of employment is beneficial, contributing to the community boosts self-worth, and perhaps most importantly, humour and learning to laugh at yourself are good for you. Crocus saved my life, and I’ll be loyal to it until the day I die. For all I know I would be dead without it and what it gave me."

- Jeff Crowder, President of Crocus
