Stories of Support

We all need a helping hand from time to time. These are quotes of family and friends who reached out to help a loved one get through a hard time.

“My wife wanted to die and I called in and spoke with someone who was very helpful. She kept my wife from doing something drastic. I’m really grateful for crisis.”

“I am the father of a son who is diagnosed with a mental illness and going through medication changes. I called in to ask questions and the person I spoke with was very nice. She gave me good suggestions and strategies for understanding the situation. It was enlightening and she was very empathetic. It was a good experience.”

“[The counselor] was wonderful. I was concerned for my sibling who was suicidal and lives across the country. I really appreciate your help and support in getting him the service he needed.”
