“CHT changed my perception of the world. They made me feel like I wasn’t alone and that I could talk to these people whenever I needed them. I started to become an honest, caring and relaxed person because of the people around me at CHT.”
“I felt cared for and very supported”
“They have shown me things I would not have learned by myself, which I am very grateful for.”
“Every time I cried, they told me it’s ok. They reassured me when times got hard. They made me smile when I felt like I couldn’t.”
“Since I moved to Mount Lodge I have been here longer than any other of my placements and did not have a placement breakdown. I have achieved my goals of getting into work and keeping it. I have learned a lot about setting my personal boundaries for my own personal safety and security. I have developed as a person into the person who I want to be. I have dramatically reduced the amount of contact I have with emergency services.”
Ben, resident from Mount Lodge
“I haven’t been here long and still have a long way to go, but its taught me boundaries, its taught me to give each other space.
“I feel better for having people around me than I did before”
“I feel like if it wasn’t for CHT, I don’t think I would get through this. Your profession, that’s the kind of thing I want to do.
