Story #1 “Kay” (not her real name in order to protect confidentiality)
"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my gratitude for the services I have received from you and the Coastal Samaritan Counseling Center. For me this is a chance to hopefully give something back. My concern is that I will not be able to adequately describe the enormous benefits I have received from you and the organizations that make this possible. There is such an overwhelming need for affordable access to mental health services. I am so thankful that despite my financial situation, the doors were not shut, but generously opened and I was allowed to gratefully enter. Without the support of very special people, this would not be possible. For those I hope you hear my words and know that there is nothing more important than the mental health and well being of our society."
