“U Good F.A.M. provided me to not only share my own opinions and experiences as a black college student in a PWI, but to also hear others talk about their own challenges that I’ve never heard of that gave me a new angle and understanding. It’s truly a safe
space to have a healthy dialogue.” N.R.
“For me, U Good F.A.M. opened up a safe place for youth to have the difficult conversations that we are usually not able to have within society.” R.E.
“U Good F.A.M. student dialogue is the safe space I did not know I needed. Never have I felt more motivated to share my struggles around mental health and
listen to my peers share theirs.” M.D.
“Counseling with Dr. Sadler was definitely a life changing experience that I am thankful for. I was hesitant in the beginning about confiding in someone, but Dr. Sadler moved at my pace. I have grown a lot in regards to my mental and emotional health. I also am more aware of being kind to myself and realizing that everything will be okay, even
when it seems like it won’t be. I am now an advocate for mental health." 10/10 would recommend! S.H.
“I attended a life changing education session that Dr. Sadler provided discussing how “Nothing in You Dies.” She compassionately shared the importance of normalizing the self when faced with challenges. Her professionalism, expertise, and relevancy provided great comfort and enlightenment. Dr. Sadler gave me tools and principles on how to live an empowered life.” J.K.
“I appreciate Dr. Sadler always being willing to avail herself to serve, especially in difficult times when it is needed the most, instilling the
message that there is HELP and HOPE,
which transcends beyond trauma.” N.W.
