Anxiety, depression and other mental health problems can be difficult to recognize and even more difficult to treat.

Even if someone is diagnosed, they may not have access to affordable support. Now, a local nonprofit is looking to change that.

Sean Perry is one of the co-founders of "We R. Hope." He spoke with our Galen Ettlin about how his group is working to make sure access to treatment and support is easier. Watch the video for the full interview.
