Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?

Donell is passionate about providing mental healthcare because it allows him to be a part of one’s healing process. He desires to not put a band-aid on an issue but to seek out the root of it so that the client could experience true healing. He relates to what it is like to want to have someone to talk with about certain things. He wants to be that soundboard, that supports others who may be going through a similar experience.
