“When I came to the Trauma Center, I had just put a restraining order on my boyfriend for hitting me in front of my kids. I moved from shelter to shelter for 3 months. I didn't see how counseling could help me because I had too much going on.
Today, it's still hard but I look forward to meeting with my therapist because I know I'm going to leave the office feeling like I can get through the week."

“This trip was personal to me because I am of Haitian descent. It helped me to see my family and myself differently...
Seeing perceptions change about mental health in a brief 5 day training gave me hope for the future of my parent's homeland."
