Southeast Health Group Discusses Depression in Rural Settings

Featured in the Kiowa County Independent, Southeast Health Group’s CEO, JC Carrica, discusses the realities of depression in rural settings.

The article, written by Priscilla Waggoner, states this of JC:

“In many ways, Carrica is a man with a foot in each of two worlds: as a mental health professional, he understands the psychological factors that go into suicide, but, as small farm owner, he understands how agricultural communities are uniquely vulnerable to suicide. And he’s been hearing those concerns expressed to him quite a lot.”
