Our Impact

“It’s been two years since I used to come to this website to share my pains and problems. Now I want to thank the person behind this screen writing to all of the disoriented youth that need help – youth that, like me, never had someone to talk to about uncomfortable topics. … If it hadn’t been for you, I would have ended my life a long time ago; however, it was here on JovenSalud.net that I learned to be proud of myself. In the past two years I have finished high school (best in class), earned a scholarship to study accounting and currently I’m also working and learning new things in my field every day.”
