Testimonials

Hear from our past clients and helpline users on their experience with Talking for Change.

If you are like me, and have found yourself in need of help, I encourage you to give this group a try. It could be one of the best decisions that you ever make. It was for me.

The facilitators are some of the most compassionate and understanding people I have met. They didn’t judge me and instead, they genuinely offered their knowledge and help.

I found myself provided with the non-judgmental space and tools to view and resolve this issue in a pragmatic way. The tools and discussions in the program help you see it that way and turn it from an issue that feels like something that ‘just happens to you’ and is out of your control, to one that is tangible, less scary, and resolvable. This really let me believe in the idea that my life can be, and now certainly is, a far happier one, and the direction of that progress is in my hands.

If you’re a young adult like me and reluctant to join the Talking for Change program, just do it. Not dealing with a problem, won’t make it go away. Talking for Change allowed me to open up about this issue with people that would understand me, and they provided strategies not only for this issue, but strategies for mental day-to-day problems.

The clinicians in this program are very kind, it takes a lot of skill to talk to people who are sharing their deepest secrets.

It’s hard to talk about this, and I really appreciate the program’s compassion.
