I work with youth and young adults to help them improve depressive symptoms and self-esteem as well as effectively address family, relationship and peer conflicts.

For me home is at school. At school, nobody knows what my life is like. At school, people compliment me and think I'm perfect. At school, I forget about my troubles for a short space of time. At school I can manage to laugh every now and then. At school, I feel loved. At school. I can't self harm. At school, I feel happy.
Home, as cliche as it is, is a place in which you can completely relax and find yourself in your surroundings. If you can imagine a place in which you fully immerse yourself in the space, and can be your true self, that is home.
Home Is My House! I Don't worry about anything or anyone. I don't worry about what's going on outside. I feel safe it's like my little safe haven. I feel completely relaxed an my anxiety don't get half as bad as when I'm outside.
Wherever you can be yourself, and feel loved. The place you always go back to whenever you need help or just some time to yourself.
Home. Home is where I feel comfortable to be myself, and act the way I want to act. Home is where I don't feel the need to be fake or wear a mask to cover up my insecurities, let alone my doubts. Home is where I can be my true self, speak of honesty and wisdom, truth and love, not being obliged to be whom society wants me to be. Home is where I find peace and serenity. Right now, home is where I live, but I am yet to find that one true place where I belong.
Home for me is where I feel comfortable, home is where I can take time to sleep or tend to my illnesses, talk to my friends, listen to music and be myself around my own family. Feeling comfortable is the main part of home for me.
Home for me is a place of peace and love. A comfortable place where I can be me without fear. A place where there is support when I need it or a place where I can find space when I need some time to myself. I am as much at home no matter where I am- surrounded by those who care and love me.
Home is where I got all the liberty to do the right things which I seriously need and have people who shower love and take care
Home is not a place. Home is someone whom you return to, after a long, tiring journey. Home is a person or group of people who want you. Some where you are wanted and loved. Home is where no matter after how many years, people still wait with open arms for you. That is what home is. Home is where the heart is.
For me home is not a place. It is someone who i feel comfort with anytime anywhere and no matter where it it.
Home,for me, isn't a physical place at all. It's somewhere i can be myself, without being judged. It could be anywhere.
For me, home is where I do not have to hide who I truly am. It is a place where I can truly express myself and grow. It is a place where there are people who can see the entirety of me - for all my glees and follies - and still love, trust, and accept me wholeheartedly.
Home is where destructive thoughts don’t exist, your heart is not racing, and you are filled with oneness, wholeness, unity, and joy.
In my personal opinion, home is where those who you care for are rather than your house. I have always thought that what matters in this life is people. Without friends or family, you'd be depressed. There is no purpose in life without them. Us humans are social. We need to socialize because of that. It could be that, as an introvert, you sometimes need some time to be on your own, but you will always need other people in your life. This is why home is where the people you care for are. Because without them, we are nothing. And don't get me wrong, you will meet people along your life that will be important, so don't worry about not having them close at some point in your life.
My home is in my heart. Without knowing what you want in life you can not have a home for yourself. You are a important part of yourself that you need to listen to it at all times. This is where your home is at the end of the day it all within your soul and heart. Never loose sight of who you are on the inside and know that there is people always looking for you to helping them find there homes as well at the end of the day here. Never give up on this, and to me that is where my home is.
I don't think of my Home in terms of physical or like a house. Home os wherever my heart is. Its being close to and spending time with my loved ones, including family and friends. Its the feeling of love and support that they give and is returned in terms of needs. Its having a close community of people that can rely on one another, for emotional support. When you are able to support each other it build a connection of love. It can also include new people who you come to care for. Its all about making new connections (neighbourhood) and looking after those precious to you.
I am a true child of the world. Born in Alberta, Canada. I was lucky enough to travel all over the world, even as a child. I come from a strong military family. Which I carried on as well. Once out of the military, i further travelled to explore places most don't goto. I have never been a tourist type or resort style person. It's all about getting to the heart of the culture for me. Going deep into the place where my face was the only colour like it. To date I have been to somewhere around 100 countries. So to answer you frankly. Where is home for you? Well its where I lay my head down at night.
Home is where I can feel safe, as well as accepted for who I actually am. My family wasn’t very accepting of me when I was growing up, being super homophobic and quite verbal about how they felt about my actions. I found refuge with talking with friends, both in real life as well as online. I would say that my real home is not the house that I live in, but really the time spent with those that actually care for me and accept me. Even if I have never met those people face to face, they are my true family
Home is wherever I feel contempt, where I can be myself fully and without worrying for other's opinions of me. Home can be many places, with a certain friend, whilst performing one's favorite hobbies, or even when being alone and thinking about life. There is no one place where people claim home is, it's all subjective to each and every person, nobody can accurately say where your home will be, it's a quest for finding out who you are right now, where you want to be and who you want to become, but most importantly where you can feel like yourself. Home isn't one place, or person, like I said, it can be many things, and there is no shame in admitting that you don't have a home yet. This doesn't mean that there isn't one for you, it just means that you haven't found it yet. Keep searching, take a moment to breath in and think of moments where you've been overjoyed, felt bliss because nothing could annoy or bother you, that will get you just one bit closer to home.
Home is where I feel most comfortable to be myself, home does not discriminate, home mistakes are made, home is where I learn and grow. Home is no physical place but HOME SWEET HOME is where my heart is. I believe family sometimes cannot be home, but who ever makes us feel welcome, joy, sadness, love, appreciated, accepted that is where home is. Living in a house doesn't make it home for sure as we human being as sociable in nature, whether we interact with paid or volunteered persons we must interact and where we feel accepted most is where home will be.
I have a lot of homes – I've lived in many places, I don't have very strong roots to any particular place, and I have people who matter to me deeply all around the world. They're my home. My cat is my home. Wherever I am in the moment is often amazing and I can love it, but the places aren't as important as the connections for me. So really, "home" for me is ultimately people and emotions. In some ways that's tough, because those aren't something that's always available, and I can't ever have all my people in one place – they're all over, so having access to some of them will mean not having access to others. But then I just have to try to be more present in the moment. Ultimately, even though it's hard sometimes, I wouldn't trade the fact that I can be so many different places and still feel "home".
