If I didn’t have Prepare U and I was picturing myself 10 years from now… I can’t picture myself 10 years from now because I was in an extremely dark place… Prepare U kinda made me realize, hey, I am a strong person, I can do this.

I know so many people that have thought about committing suicide. I have one friend who was thinking about it. I talked to him for hours and he didn't end up doing it and he is still my friend today. I feel like this program helped me to keep going with it and telling him.

I recently lost a family member so it was nice to learn how to comfort my family through that, and also myself.

My teacher seems a lot more relatable now after going through this program because he was also in it, doing the same exercises that we were doing.

In my class I feel like after we went through this experience we became closer as a group because we learned so much about each other from doing the class discussions.
