Sarah's story.

Sarah has a history of attacking people and even though the YOT did a lot of work with her on anger management and self- esteem she ended up in Crown Court for a serious offence.

A general health review revealed that she complained of headaches and "missed time" when she could not remember what had happened to her.

This had been put down to her heavy drinking, but a detailed diary she was asked to keep by the YOT eventually showed all the violence was before she had a period and the lost time turned out to be caused by epilepsy.

She was given medication for the epilepsy, a change of diet to help with the pre-menstrual tension and she has stayed out of trouble since.

She is now planning to go to college.
