"We all struggle with things that it is helpful to talk through and sometimes it can be helpful to talk to a friend or a family member. But sometimes you really need to talk to someone who's kind of been in your shoes. Who really understands what you are dealing with and I think that is what peer support programs offer" – Carrie McClain

"My conversations have been like chatting with friends I have not seen for a while and getting feedback on what's going on, what's bothering you... There's no judgment here. We all have families. We all have businesses. The dynamic of those two things is powerful.” – Vicky Porter
