“These are not numbers. They’re the persons you confide in at work or school, a cousin, teammate, the guy you see on the train every day. These in justifiable terms, are the same individuals that would use your services at some point in their lives if exposed to it. It’s okay to embrace who you are inside and what you have overcome to help others gain strength to heal them-selves. We encourage people not to be afraid to be judged but understand that they can change their life for the better just by speaking their truth.”
