    Shelly’s interest in mental and behavioral healthcare developed during childhoodHer grandmother became depressed and changed from an outgoing person to someone who became withdrawn and cold.  Her grandmother then began to see a mental health professional, and while it took some time, she became much closer to the grandmother that Shelly remembered. That renewal of spirit was what led Shelly to begin thinking of mental health care as a career choice.
