Earla's Story

Anxiety kept Earla Dunbar from walking out her front door. Courage helped her walk in ours. Earla actually locked the door and hid when people came to her home. It was a combination of severe social phobia and depression. Then came CAMH. Earla says, openly, "The day I walked into CAMH was the first day of my life."
