Patient Stories

My visits were six to eight weeks apart

Published Wednesday, January 9, 2019

I’m a patient who went to get help with depression brought on by life-long medical problems. My therapist was good, but my visits were six to eight weeks apart, and this schedule didn’t help with my problems. I need a therapist to talk though my problems and keep my depression under control. We are told to find help if we are depressed or feeling sad for long periods of time, but the truth is there is very limited help when you need it.
