“I‘m a member of your group, SODA.  I’ve just read your story from the link you’ve just posted and I just wanted to let you know that you’re an amazing and inspirational woman! Thank you for founding this group and creating a platform for support for survivors of domestic abuse, both physical and mental.”

“Thank you, you don’t know how much it helps being able to talk about it”

“Thank you Sam for everything for the chats and things you post it’s helped me so much more than you’ll ever know and one time before I spoke to you I was going to end my life because I felt so trapped but I talked to you and felt like a weight had been lifted and you don’t get anywhere near enough credit for what you do so thank you a million times over, you’re amazing and deserve the world”

“So glad to have found this group to signpost women (and men) too.  Sam came and spoke to a group of us from West Midlands Ambulance Service recently to talk about the work SODA does.  In the last week alone I have signposted two women alone to this group.  Well done and keep up the hard work.  You are amazing”

“Thanks for listening Sam, it helps a lot.  I’d seen your posts on Twitter.  Thanks for the add to your group”

“You have made a huge difference to my life and I thank you for that.  6 months ago I was close to suicide but finding you and your group, together with my counsellor, vitamins and medication. I am so much improved.  Thank you again."
