Khadouj’s Story: strength through sickness

Khadouj has struggled with anxiety and depression her whole life. Over the years, she got steadily worse and thought about ending her life. She refrained because she did not want to let her children down. One day, following what she describes as “a year of crying”, her doctor said she was no longer fit for work and put her on incapacity benefits.

She is thankful to B-MINCOME; I don’t feel like before, I feel like somebody who is…strong”.
