What our clients are saying

I have been in the Mental Health Skills Building program since January and I all I can say is that I don't know what took me so long to sign up. I have learned to care for myself better and learned about other resources available to me that I never knew existed. My counselor is compassionate and extremely resourceful. She is the best!
