Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?

Kelly is passionate about mental health because she believes many people face difficulties at some point in life, which significantly impacts their mental and emotional well-being and quality of life. During these times, people deserve a supportive environment to turn to for help. But, most importantly, no one should feel they have to struggle or suffer alone.
