“I’d like to thank everyone who works at DYSS for being supportive. When I needed help through difficult times in my life you guys are awesome. I hope you can change lives for the better like you did with me.”

“I got help on the things I wasn’t the best at and got to learn how to have a healthy relationship and how to look at everything.”

“The hardest part of doing the program was coming here – getting up. One reason I will continue to work on my anger will be to get better – be a better person.”

“You’re amazing kind people and I appreciate everything you have done for me. You have helped me in so many ways, the program was interesting and very helpful!”

“The program helped me deal with my anger. I did not think it would work, but it did and I have noticed.”

“They are all amazing people and I enjoy all of them.”

“This whole experience has helped me.”

“I thought this program helped me to find myself and my true feelings for me and the people around me.”

“I definitely learned a lot about myself, and in doing so, I feel like I understand my anger more and have control over it. Ever since I started this program, I’ve noticed improvements in my anger and my behaviour. Coming here makes me feel good about myself. Thank you!”

“I learned at my own pace. I liked that I could talk instead of sitting and listening the entire time, and I like that she made sure I understood what she was saying.”

“The staff were friendly and made me feel welcome.”

“Thanks for helping me get a job.”

“This program was great, I wouldn’t change a thing!”

What Parents are saying about DYSS

“This service was just what my son needed. It was almost a saving grace.”

“Very pleased with DYSS! My son enjoyed his time there and has been pleasant to deal with at home.”

“My daughter is doing a lot better now. I feel that being in the program helped her. The communication between the 2 of us is better than before.”

“My son’s self-confidence has improved and he controls his temper better, his dad has noticed a change in him too.”

“Your program is excellent, should be more accessible to kids before they go to court.”

“I am thrilled with your program. I couldn’t believe the difference in my son’s behaviour/attitude since he started going there. It has been a life saver for me and my family. Everyone should be aware of the good work you do there!”

“Great program, love the fact there was consistent contact between your staff and me, I always knew what was going on. Too bad all kids can’t go there, so many could use your program.”
