“Talking to KYDS about my fears during COVID-19 lock down
really helped me get through a tough time.”
“Keeping everything to myself was just so hard and exhausting.
Contacting KYDS was a really big turning point.”
“I had no idea what to do, or where to turn. Then a friend mentioned
KYDS and I’m so glad they did. Their support changed everything.”
“If you want to speak with someone who listens, rather than
judges, speak with KYDS. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner.”
