We are gearing up for our annual auction! Everyone at The Center is working furiously to organize the auction items, prepare our program, gather our donors, distribute tickets and rally the community to come together for an evening to commemorate our 30 years of service in Taipei. At the auction we will celebrate success stories from The Center like this one from Anne:*
My meetings with a counselor at the Center came at just in time. I had been suffering anxiety attacks and depression for several months but wasn’t sure what I could do about it. I had strong support from my family and a couple of close friends, but it wasn’t enough. I saw several doctors but none really seemed to understand me and their drugs made me feel worse. I was scared I would not be able to stop taking medicine. Talking with my counselor helped me feel more comfortable with myself. She also introduced me to the right doctor who was very sensible and made me feel more confident that I could recover. I met with my counselor over several months. From twice a week at first, our sessions became less frequent as I became stronger. Now I’m happy to say after a very bad year, I am back to normal, even stronger, knowing myself better.
Because of donations like yours, more people in Taiwan will be able to find the mental health support they need. Please continue to help us, through our Global Giving page and at our Auction on October 20. Thank you for supporting The Community Center!
