"I wanted to stay in bed, watching TV while not showered and undernourished. I could barely take care of myself let alone get dressed and drive to group. I, however, had no choice. I used all my energy to come to group. Much to my surprise, I immediately felt a connection to my peers and started sharing my story while also listening to everyone else’s. I immediately felt comfortable and knew the group would help me at some level. And it has. Each week, I learned more and more about myself as well as my peers. They along with the facilitator became my family. I could safely share anything and would always get helpful feedback and advice. It felt “normal” knowing that I was not alone in my thoughts. Others felt similar and that was comforting. I am grateful I gave the group a fair chance because it has helped me tremendously. I feel stronger and well supported. I can now get up, get ready, eat, and eagerly come to group. I have greatly benefitted from everyone.”-Female participant, Age 37
"Being in group has helped me so much. At first, I was unsure about attending, because I didn’t want strangers to know what I was going through. During the first week of being in group, I realized that there was no one to judge me, like outside of the group. I felt comfortable talking about my problems to people whom I’ve never met. I would not have imagined in my life that this therapy would be beneficial to me. So, anyone who is considering attending a group therapy session, but is not sure, don’t be afraid to discuss your issues, other people are going through similar situations as you.”-Male participant, Age 45
