Volunteer Mary Park said:
”When my children were in school, I used to get into conversation with other parents about their children. During conversation, I often found many of parents didn’t know where to turn to or who to consult with as they troubled with problems for their kids.
12 years ago, I also had difficult time dealing with my teenage child. She suffered and I struggled not knowing what to do. Sometimes, I didn’t want to face the problem. Other times, I thought about ignoring it and giving it up. To me, healing process seemed too long and hard, and would never end. However, during that difficult process, my husband and I were able to reflect ourselves if we were good enough parents. And then we tried to be better one.
Because of my experience with my child, I became interested when I heard about the class for Mental Health First Aid offered by Esther Ha Foundation. I loved the class and learned a lot. A few months later, I learned Esther Ha Foundation was going to set up helpline. Without hesitation, I wanted to help and became a volunteer because it reminded me how desperate I was, looking for help in the past. I like to thank Esther Ha Foundation for having helpline for our community and I am grateful to be a part of the team.”
