Withdrawn and quiet, Teresa came to the PROS Center for Wellness for help with her depression. When Teresa spoke it was a sad whisper, often trailing off into silence. She described her thoughts as being in "a dark, dark place".

After being with peers in her scheduled groups, a change in medication and some one-on-one counseling, Teresa began to brighten. She started to voice her thoughts clearly, began to interact with her peers, and participated more in her therapy groups. Her mood has lifted, and she's become a vocal advocate for people with depression. She's even started her own peer group for Women's mental health.



John felt like he had nothing to live for when he arrived at our Outpatient Counseling and Treatment Center. John had mental health problems most of his life, but after his father died his depression and anxiety worsened.

With the help of our counselor, John learned to overcome his depression and anxiety. It took time, but today he has a college education, has repaired relationships with his family and has positive future goals.

It all started with a fall. Luckily, a neighbor saw Marge lying on her front porch and rushed to help. After spending several days in the hospital and weeks in rehab with a broken hip, Marge began to worry if she'd ever make it home.

Seeing Marge in a depressed state, our Community Mental Health Nurse visited her regularly, helping her stay motivated to regain her mobility. Our Nurse provided the link to wellness Marge needed in order to return to an independent life at home, complete with supportive services to make life safer.
