    Thank you for acknowledging World Mental Health Day. This is also a strong reminder that we are not only working with dialysis patient but with some dialysis patients with mental health issues.That we need to do our best in assisting these individuals in meeting these needs because it will definitely helps with patient adherence to dialysis.

    You’re right, Marie. As our patients and their interdisciplinary teams become better acquainted and the lines of communication opens, the obstacles of depression will be easier to overcome and the patients will be better armed to enjoy a high quality of life.
