The February 2019 event, with singer-songwriter Sara Thomsen, was moving and beautiful. Some of the music is captured here.
During the event, chorus member Stef gave this testimontial:
Back in my early 20’s I struggled with feeling disconnected from my brain and my body. I was having crippling anxiety attacks. I couldn’t focus. I couldn’t manage seemingly simple daily tasks. This was particularly difficult for me to share with those around me, as I had been historically very high achieving.
I found Walk-In Counseling Center on a tip from one of my coffee shop regulars and it made all the difference. I was able to immediately be seen. They didn’t need to know my real name, or if I had a job, or the ability to pay for such services. They just knew I was a person struggling.
Even though I had health insurance, finding a mental health resource with immediate availability or the capacity to see new individuals was and is hard. I was eventually able to transition to a caregiver outside of their services who was able to determine my struggles came from likely life-long undiagnosed ADHD.
I was quietly thrilled when I learned that VocalPoint and Walk-In Counseling had finally aligned. It feels like I can finally give them a proper thank you for helping me regain control of my life so long ago.
