Meet Alicia

Alicia said that the mental health presentation from a United Way funded partner really helped her understand herself better. She said: “Since I saw the presentation and reached out for help I have been seeing a therapist and was recently diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I now have tools to talk about my illness. I feel comfortable telling people about it without being worried they will judge me. It definitely helped hearing someone else talk about their story and how they got through everything. The presentation helped turn my life around.” Alicia is just one of an entire class of seniors who was helped by the presentation as they are experiencing increased stress due to the pandemic.
