When I started going to Milestone I met really great people that helped me. I have really bad anxiety but I've learned how to just be in the present.  I've grown so much from being here. I've been so many places in Madison. I've been happy for the first time in a long time. I’m glad I got to experience this.

Reflections on my experience

 

I spent the majority of my time at Milestone learning about myself. How I think, understand and process my emotions, ways to cope, and that I have people to talk to when I am in need. I have learned that everyone is unique and different from one another. No two people think the same. I feel safe at Milestone.

Reflections on my experience

 

I feel like I pushed myself to do more and be better for me. Instead of coming to class and just watching and listening to a teacher talk I figure my way out, or push my way through it, or get direction and help. Because listening to people talk and just looking at a screen all day is not gonna help me learn.
