“I made aliyah at 16 with my family. It was a huge upheaval but then I loved it. When I was ill, the waves of blackness swamp you, you leave everything else behind. Religion took a back seat. Now everything I do is Jewish, my work, social and home life.”
Cindy Collick, 52, from Edgware, suffered with severe post-natal depression after the birth of her first son. She later trained as a counsellor and works for the Jewish Bereavement Counselling Service.
