Thank you for the wonderful infographic regarding the intersection of arthritis and mental health. I plan to use this in an upcoming presentation on physical therapy for mental health and have reposted it with acknowledgement to you on LinkedIn, plus will share more so it can possibly reach more and help as many people to understand how physical and mental health go hand in hand. There’s no health without mental health. In gratitude, Caryn McAllister
