In episode five, Bryan shares honest insights into his mental health challenges. After a series of health challenges and the loss of friends, Bryan found himself feeling very low. A brochure for COTA Social Connections at his local library provided the turning point he needed. Support from his peer volunteer Lizzie, has helped him re-engage with activities and new social groups. Bryan has also found a new determination to enjoy life, and has resolved to be more proactive for his family.
