The following statement was issued today by County of San Luis Obispo District 3 Supervisor Adam Hill regarding his health.
Persistent, and at times, painfully debilitating depression, has necessitated my seeking more intensive and focused treatment at a residential health program.
While I have been working closely with county staff on the many challenging issues our community faces, I have not been able to recover and heal as sufficiently as needed, and chose to seek specialized care at this time.
Many people are suffering right now, and the way forward for all of us, ultimately, is to overcome polarizing and alienating tendencies that fuel suspicion, antagonism, and violence. Our common humanity is injured badly by this, but renewed every time we show compassion and a willingness to understand and respect others.
To the extent that your own difficulties have impacted your mental health, please do allow yourself some help by contacting 800-838-1381 or 800-793-0607.
If my office can be of assistance, we would welcome it. Call direct at 805-781-4336.
Thank you for your gracious understanding as I feel determined to return soon and in much better health.
