"Thank you! Honestly, this really did help. Just talking...it's strange. But, I feel I've done a 180. I was at my tipping point. This does feel better to get it out!"
"I just wanted to thank you for all the work you do. I was a distraught 15-year-old when I made the call some years ago. The counselor I spoke to saved my life."
"Thanks for your support. Thanks for being there over the years when I was in big trouble and left to rot by other people I knew my whole life. You helped me get through the day."
