Mental Health Depression
Most, if not all, providers have an interest in helping those around them. We found six providers that chose to tell their stories as they relate to Chronic Depression. All of the stories are different but they are all being told for the same reason. These providers are willing to do what many of us will never do. They are sharing their experiences so that they will help those around them. Mental Health First-Aid Instructor, Melodie Kolmetz and Dual Certified Family Practice Physician / Family Therapist, Alan Lorenz discuss the growth that our profession has seen. They also give fantastic guidance regarding the care of patients, partners, and ourselves.
