"Able now to understand my condition and thoughts."

About: ATAPs (Far West Medicare Local)

(as the patient),

I was referred through ATAPs mental health care plan from my doctor.

I have been seeing my psychologist for a few months. I have gone from being a prisoner to my depression to being able to look forward to life.

I think CBT therapy has worked for me even though in the beginning I was skeptical. I have gone from being on 200 mg of Zoloft and feeling like a zombie to 50 mg and with the great service provided to me through ATAPs have been able to understand my condition and my thoughts and actions
