A Life Worth Living

“#themarshalleffect provided my client with the ability to complete a year of DBT that was essential in helping her develop coping skills to reduce self harm, suicidal thoughts and substance use. Prior to engaging in DBT she was not leaving her home, unable to work and fearful of engaging in any social activities outside of her family. #themarshalleffect made it possible for my client to reach her life worth living goals of friendships, a job, traveling and doing it all sober!”

Shyla Ford-Marchion, LCSW, Training Director Front Range Treatment Center

The mission of #themarshalleffect is to promote awareness and provide support for youth and young adults who are at risk of self-harm or suicide, and who are victims of partner abuse.

We also wish to carry on Ryan’s legacy of helping others through activities that reflect his spirit as well as the challenges he faced in his own life.

Freedom

I have clients come to DBT who have been in therapy for years prior and have not been at a safe enough place to work on their trauma. Now I have a teen client who is getting to start this work 8 MONTHS into therapy because of the generous funding from #themarshalleffect. You have no idea the freedom from pain, building of confidence, and life opportunities this opens for this 16-year-old.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!

Empowerment

“#themarshalleffect gave my client hope during a very dark time. I am extremely grateful for this funding; it was a necessary piece of the puzzle to help my client heal. My client was suicidal and now is excited by her future and empowered to regulate difficult emotions.”

Karine McCulloch, MSW, Staff Therapist Front Range Treatment Center

Stability

The funding from #themarshalleffect has made it possible for clients and their families to find some stable ground under their feet. Continuous support and skill building with year long DBT group and individual sessions has made a big difference in how clients work through difficult situations and emotions as they learn to regulate better and work on their trauma. I am grateful to #themarshalleffect for their support and hard work in making it possible for families and young ones in need of therapeutic support.
