Clients and Collaborators at NYFS Share About Their Experiences

When I first met Laurie I was emotionally and mentally in a bad place. I didn’t care about where I was going; I didn’t care about people around me – I was very self-centered. I had so much trauma and so many things that I never talked about because, before Laurie, I didn’t see a therapist. Without the services I was provided, I think I would be in jail – I don’t think I would have graduated high school. I couldn’t imagine where I would be without NYFS. I’m proud of myself now — I’m very proud of myself.

Quote from a former client in our School Based Mental Health program

There was a relief – to know that even though this process was scary, I didn’t have to go through it alone. I knew I had a resource I could go to get help if I needed it. It is hard to put into words the value of NYFS’ services as the mother of a kid who is struggling. I don’t think you could put a price on it – this was my child’s life and my child was in danger of losing that life. Today my child is thriving and I never thought I would be able to say that. 

Quote from a parent of a mental health clinic client

The last few years have been really tough on our youth. A lot of those connections, and feeling like being a part of a community, have gone away. Youth and their families are really struggling and that’s why programs like these are so important.

Erika Scheider, Roseville Chief of Police
