Students often refer to their time at the center as enriching, and an invaluable tool for understanding mental health issues and the people faced with them. As they get to know members personally, they speak candidly with students about the mental health system and the challenges they face.

This is great project which makes a difference nowadays especially knowing about stigma in the society about mental illnesses." -Broward College RN Student
