Another humbling experience today, touring a facility of the nonprofit we're teamed with on our duathlon, meeting the professionals who work in mental health and addiction services. I found it extremely moving, especially meeting the woman who runs the facility and the one who runs the art therapy groups.
I can't imagine making a life's work out of dealing with these issues day in, day out. It's so inspiring.
One out of five individuals struggles with a mental health issue. One out of ten struggles with addiction. And many are 'seniors,' already an under-served part of our population, as well as a growing part of our population.
Our mom absolutely loved her adult daycare experience at Volunteers of America. I know how important these sorts of services are.
Thank God there are people who are called to these professions.
