Quote from a PSW:
“Being a Peer Support Specialist for Kings View has been nothing but amazing. Ever since I joined the program I have felt comfort, respect and felt free to express myself. Not only did it help me with my problems, it also helped me help others and understand that I am not alone. I would 100% recommend my close friends and loved ones to receive services from Kings View if they ever needed a helping hand or even someone to talk to in a time of crisis. I learned to not feel embarrassed or ashamed to talk about my mental health and my journey to become mentally healthier.”
