"CHC helped me break down the barriers and the stigma surrounding mental health, and I became aware that it is important for every single person to address and nurture their own mental health."
"I owe my family's wellness journey to CHC. Anxiety is an issue that has been passed down throughout several generations of my family, and I never realized this until I saw my daughter exhibit anxious behaviors that concerned me. I didn't think much of it because my daughter, age 3 at the time, was so bright and very well adapted socially with peers and adults. Thanks to CHC's Community Education resources, I became more aware of psychological concerns in children. I continued being compassionate with her and tried to understand her emotional needs. After all, I did see part of myself in her.
Fast forward 5 years to my first anxiety attack in 2019. It shook my world. I began regular therapy immediately for the first time in my life at age 42. It was then that I started my own emotional recovery. Since then, my life has been turned upside down, but I'm able to cope despite the challenges that lie ahead. I soon realized that my family's intergenerational trauma and lack of emotional awareness play a huge part in who we are. I am now dedicated to improving our emotional wellbeing and have a newfound sense of freedom and direction.
