  • What has been most valuable to you about your experience?

    “The support of everyone at the Center for survivors including the office staff, my therapist, the advocates, and Justice were/are so important to my ongoing healing process. I know that I’m safe and can be truly honest and vulnerable in the Center for Survivors, this means a lot because I’m not able to do this in everyday situations. The Center for Survivors is an incredible and necessary resource at MSU. I will continue to utilize the services as long as I need them, and I know there will always be caring people to help me and other survivors.”
