Thank you for posting this series. There are so many walking wounded in our midst who do not have the luxury of acceptance or a leg/arm cast to show they are dealing with a debilitating illness. It's difficult to relate to the average person the significance of "not feeling too bad" when it's something most take for granted. People suffering with anxiety and depression just want peace of mind and the tools to get there.

Where to begin. I guess it is the time of year where depression hits most for people, specially myself. I have been diagnosed with PTSD recently (struggling with depression for many years & not knowing what was wrong with me )& for me it is a every day struggle, but I take each day one day at a time. Thankfully I finally found the help thru the Start Clinic that helped be thru my struggle. It was a start for me. The only problem was it was for a short time. I do have the support of my family and friends now, knowing what my condition is, but you do still struggle with it continuiously. It is an non ending battle. I do want to say is thank you for publishing these articles in the telegram. Maybe it is a start for people to be more aware of the problem & not put a blind eye to it. Thank you

I have read every article so far and want to comment on how important it is to make the public aware of how disgraceful it is that our Health Care System does not provide the essential services for mentally challenged individuals. Please keep up the good work and maybe, just maybe, you can shame them into taking some steps to provide these essential services.
