What people are saying

I need help and my friends couldn’t help because I couldn’t share what was actually happening between me and my father. I didn’t want to tell them everything, but talking anonymously with a listener made me feel safe enough to really open up. I’m so glad I did.

Now I talk to a listener a few times a week when I need help. It’s my latest feel good activity, especially when I need to vent. Yoga, RomCom movie, 7 Cups of Tea. Thank you!

I’m always on the clock, sometimes it feels like I work 24/7 and barely have time to schedule dinner with my wife. It’s so easy to decompress with a listener on my crazy schedule. I can just call in on my way home from work and it isn’t an ordeal like scheduling a therapist. Plus, my wife gets to enjoy me a little less stressed.

Graham C. North Carolina

I got undivided attention from someone who cared for the first time in a really, really long time when I needed mental help. I finally felt like someone stopped and understood what was going on in MY life.
