“If it weren’t for this group of amazing women and our facilitator I would be the suicidal, desperate depressed person that was my life before this program.”
“Absolutely grateful and blessed to attend the group, I fell that it is saving my life and very important for my future.”
"I had to force myself to come every week, even though I looked forward to it. The course was pretty deep, it dealt with both the head stuff and the heart stuff. I loved the course, and learned a lot about myself."
"The biggest realization I had is to take care of myself, that if I am not safe, and if I cannot control my emotions, and communicate my feelings and needs, I cannot help the children build those skills. I now believe in myself, and I deserve to have safety and respect in my relationships."
"I am talking about how abuse has affected me with my sisters, we are all talking about things we never used to speak about, we want to end the trauma with our generation, we want to be there for our children."
"I never thought of myself as important before, everyone else's needs came before mine. This has flipped for me – I am setting healthy boundaries, talking about my feelings, my thoughts, what I need, and it is working. "
"I learned to recognize sexual harassment. There are a lot of things I didn't know counted as sexual harassment that happens to me. It`s not ok for me to be treated that way and now I feel more confident standing up to that."
"The Who Do You Tell program is extremely well organized, presented, and thoughtful. It should be in every school. "
