Melyssa’s path to mental health is different than that of many. Her experiences with medications, shorter-term therapy, and mental healthcare support are evidence that treatment for mental illness is not a one-size-fits-all formula.

Depression and anxiety are closely tied, and in Melyssa’s words, “feed off each other.” Her struggles with each have become matters of strategy. Her joy is maintained through daily choices that most people do not have to make on such a regular basis.

Tune in Wednesday September 28, 2016 and discover the value Melyssa finds in practicing what works for her for managing her psychological challenges.
