Testimonials

Therapy and support can have a life-changing impact. Here is what participants are saying about our therapeutic services:

So many people want to help and offer help - but the Support Group is different because people don't just offer help. They actually do help.

12 year old Girl

Know that you are not alone. Being in the Group with other people who went through the same thing as me made me feel like I could get through anything.

16 year old girl

Step one - breathe. This is a safe place and these are safe people. They will catch you when you fall, because they caught me. The beginning was bittersweet, because I was reluctant to get help. But in the end, it's all sweetness, because everyone became my friends and greatest teachers and healers.
