"There’s a loved one in your life, 65 or older, who is struggling with depression or anxiety, possibly both. Maybe that person is even you. Chances are you’ve made mention to your loved one about “going to see someone,” or you’ve done a little research about a therapy appointment. Getting out and about is struggle. Connecting with mental health services is confusing and burdensome. And will it even MAKE A DIFFERENCE? "
