All of us, because we are humans, have, at some point in our lives, had periods of depression, and periods of anxiety. Mental health issues are often stigmatized. There is a lot of shame, a lot of embarrassment, a lot of suffering in silence that is associated with having something that involves our mind. We can all empathize with the plight of someone who has a mental health issue. The reason they have it is very complex. It is interfering with their production in their daily life, with their ability to do the things they want to do.They are just not happy. Whatever you can do to assist that person is tremendously important because these patients need all of our help. If you can impact one person, you have probably impacted 100 people. From one person benefiting from your treatment, you are helping their family, their place of employment, and all of their relationships. I do feel that we can offer them a tremendous amount of help.
