"Before I came to PREP I thought I was the only teenager who had problems. PREP groups showed me there were others too, and the medical staff helped me reduce the amount of meds I was using to treat my mental illness. With fewer side effects I finally felt good enough to go back to school and I plan to graduate in June of 2017." - J.A., age 18
"They took my baby from me at the hospital. I though I would get her back but after I was discharged I went back to using drugs. It didn't take long before I was arrested and sent to jail. I realized something had to change but I didn't know where to start. I was so ashamed. I found out about Project Pride and went there to get help. Today my baby is in Kindergarten and we live together as a family. I could not have done this without the help of everyone at Project Pride. I go back there to tell the other moms that their babies deserve to have a mother and to listen to the staff because they really care." - Alissa, age 23
