"I am inspired by your commitment and endurance of making this website and the network work. It is very much needed" Angela E. Barrows

"The mission is engaging in that the focus is on wellness and not illness which can move into prevention and not cure. I believe that a network of committed therapy professionals can have a valid voice in the current arena." - Ros Guthrie

"Love the idea of “peak mental fitness”. If society could see looking after one’s mental health as equally as important as looking after one’s physical health, my aim would be achieved. People don’t mind going to the gym etc now, although a generation ago that was considered only for fitness freaks. Maybe counselling will become more acceptable too" - Rachel
