MhIST is an excellent place to be a part of. The staff and volunteers are friendly, warm, and accepting. Services offered are accessible free of charge and cater for a diverse range of mental health issues.

All the staff and volunteers are the loveliest staff at MHIST. The group facilitator is nice as well. And mentioning no members names, but all the members are kind and helpful as well as caring. Thanks to everyone of you at MHIST for all your support. Thank you.
