Testimonials

  • In the seven years we have been working with people in the mental health field we could not have found a better group of people than Compass.  I wish we met you earlier… by and far the people at Compass have been the most professional and knowledgeable group of people.

    Adolescent Mom
  • You guys did a miracle with me.  You guys changed my life.

    Adult Patient
  • I wanted to sincerely and personally thank you and the rest of the Compass staff for truly opening my daughter’s eyes and helping her see her true strength, power, and gifts. The change in her is nothing less than remarkable and I can’t find sufficient words to express our heartfelt appreciation. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

     

    Mom of Adolescent
  • On behalf of me, my husband and my parents, we want to thank you deeply and sincerely for all your work with our son. You have changed him from the inside out; he is literally a different person from the one who sat with me  when I was at my wit’s end.

    The last five years have been traumatic as we tried to manage his bipolarity along with his self-destructive behaviors. I can honestly say there were very few bright spots until now.  He is showing a consistent ability to self regulate, reflect and plan. He is seeking out positive activities and avoiding negative ones. He is approachable, helpful and good humored.

    We feel he is now ready to move forward in his job search. Please feel free to use us a reference if a parent would ever like to speak to another parent. We will give you high marks in all areas.

    Again, we are so, so grateful for you individually and for the whole Compass experience.

    Parent of Young Adult
  • I want you all to know how much Compass made a difference in our lives. We are so thankful we found you.

    Mother of Patient
  • So… it has been a week since our son  left Compass. THINGS seem to be going very well. He and I had a problem last night and there were no anxious moments. He did not have a single episode! He auditioned for a role in the school play yesterday and made it! He is actually making more and more plans with his friends from school.

    I know that we are not out of the woods  but every day seems to be getting better and better. I wanted to once again thank you for all that you did for us! I am not quite sure we would be as far along in the healing process without you!

    Parent of Child
  • I wanted to say thank you from the very depths of my heart and soul.  I know that you are aware of how difficult these times are for families, but I don’t want to assume that you know how much your attention, love, and support has meant to me.  I have typically felt “alone” in my struggle to help my daughter.  You guys took that away and provided me with everything that I needed to be strong for my daughter…

    Parent of Teenager
  • I want to thank you  for the incredibly compassionate care you have provided for our family during the past few months. Your honesty, patience, persistence, hopefulness, and sense of humor has been amazing during what has been a very difficult time for our family. As I wrote in my evaluation, our expectations and hopes for our experience at Compass were surpassed at every level, every single day.

    You have added important layers of perspective for us and have given us all new tools for the future. I feel our daughter is as well-prepared as she could possibly be to go into this school year – and I am hopeful about the future and yet also appreciate your message that you will be waiting in the wings if necessary.

    Thank you for everything
