The following are some actual testimonials provided to The NAN Project by students and staff from the schools in which we work:

"I thought it was great to have 3 speakers with different background, to show all the different origins of mental illness and that it can affect anyone. Overall, I thought your visit was very beneficial to us students who may be going through similar experiences." - Anonymous Student, Andover High School
