"I'm very passionate about what we do here at Serenity Health. Unfortunately, I lost a very dear cousin of mine, Angela due to depression. When I was younger, I was unable to do anything to help her, but now that I can, and I want to help those who are in the same situation as she once was. No one should have to fight the battle of depression alone or feel as it is a hopeless cause. I want to help families, and patients suffering, and it is my hope that no other family has to endure the pain that suicide leaves behind."
