"When a family member was slowly slipping into some familiar signs of depression and got to the point of needing attention while our family was traveling extensively and not able to be anywhere long enough to find local resources, the LifeLine resources I found through upciministers.com were valuable. I was able to get some background information and eventually make contact with a professional to seek more specific help. I felt rather isolated; even though there were friends and family that were aware of my situation, I lacked advice and confirmation for mental health related decisions that stood before me. It was good to have somewhere to turn."
