Hold on to Hope
Believe that you CAN and DESERVE to have a joy-filled, successful, and rewarding life. We’ve done it and we know it’s possible for you, too. If you’re in a place that feels hopeless right now, that’s okay, we’ll hold the hope for you.
Commit to Stepping Forward
Keep trying! Don’t stop trying new things that may help you. There are endless possibilities of modalities that may be what you need. This is an individual game and what works for one person may not work for someone else.
Being open about what you’re going through is key getting passed the shame and other barriers that may be holding you back. Find someone you trust, such as a friend or family member, counselor, a support group, or a mental health hotline.
Encourage and empower others to grow. Share your journey and teach them these simple steps to success.
“After spending five weeks at a treatment facility, to help me cope with my severe depression and suicidal plans, I was gifted a sock kit. I immediately had tears in my eyes…to think that someone thought I deserved that gift was beyond my comprehension. Every time I wear those socks, I’m taken back to the day I received them and the love that came with them.
