What the people we help say

When we first found Mindsum, we were lost and so confused about what to do for our son. Within just a few short weeks, we felt so much hope!

Jane Cooper

@jane

Monica is a great therapist, she has a deep understanding of what it’s like to be a teenager with mental health issues and always makes you feel heard and accepted.

Ronald Richards

@ronald

I feel happier expressing myself, showing different sides of me to others, and letting others show their different sides to me. I feel less anxious and more able to pursue the things I really love.

Jenny Wilson
