Aaron Beck was 19 years old, depressed, and almost out of hope when he decided to try therapy for the first time.
"I was skeptical," he said. "It was kind of my last chance. If it didn't work, I didn't think anything would, and I was ready to just let things in."
He turned to Community Youth Services in Olympia, an organization that provides mental health care, among other services, to teenagers and young adults.
