Cath's testimonial

When I came to the Andreasen Centre some years ago, I was broken. I had no idea at the time how meeting you all would change my life. You gave me the precious gifts of kindness, compassion and understanding. You helped me pick myself up and put myself back together again.

I don't know how I found the strength mentally or physically to come; but I did. I walked through the doors to a room of welcoming smiling faces. I received some healing and it was wonderful. I was so peaceful that evening, I went to bed early and slept all night. I woke early and I wasn't crying, I wasn't anything but peaceful.

From that day onward my life hasn't been the same. For me it made the difference between wanting to live instead of not wanting to go on. For the first time in my life I felt I belonged, like I was home. Many people have said to me that they can't believe that the Andreasen exists, that people give up their time to be there for others, wanting nothing in return but to know they have helped in some way.

That is something very special to offer and I hope the Andreasen Centre will continue forever. There are no words to say how much I care for each and every one of you and how thankful I am.
