To The Daily Sun,

Recently I read an article in The Daily Sun about the Laconia School District instituting a program where each student in the high school and the middle school will have one person that the student can identify as a trustful person. I think this is a wonderful and necessary program and hope that other school districts will take heed. The prevalence of depression and availability of drugs in the young people is very troubling. We can’t minimize this problem. At the same time, many adults and elderly who have a chronic depression are searching for a qualified and affordable professional to address their situation. Where are these qualified professionals, namely doctors? I’d like input on my concerns. Thank you in advance those who may respond.
