"I really liked Thrive because it helped me work through my struggles with depression and anxiety and to learn and grow in an environment where I felt really comfortable. I loved being in the Thrive class because it was a positive, judgment-free zone. I really liked how everyone was supportive, understanding, and friendly. It helped me feel a sense of belonging by being a part of the group."
