Alicia attended a mental health presentation given by a United Way funded partner. It really helped her understand herself better, she explained. “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 the 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 high school seniors who were helped by the presentation, given the influx of stress they were experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
