"You’ll be connected to someone from our experienced team. They’ll introduce themselves and ask for your first name. They will then ask you some questions to understand what you’re worried about. You’ll be able to talk about your concerns and how you’re feeling.

They will give you any advice and guidance they think will be helpful to you, and can explain your options for getting more help including the range of services that ADA offer"
