Values in Action
Michael was assigned to Melanie Diehl as he coped with severe depression. For years he had lived with his mother who fell where they lived in 2009 and was hospitalized. When Melanie began working with Michael, he was paralyzed with fear that he’d never go back to living with his mother.
I was suffering from depression, anxiety, and agoraphobia. Starting the In SHAPE program wasn’t easy for me, having to meet people at a certain time, go to a gym where there were a lot of other people, and discuss myself with a mentor. But my first mentor was a perfect match for me.
