It was "more bad days than good days" that brought Bill Aubert
to the Shepherd's Hand Clinic on a drizzly October evening.
A Louisiana native whose conversation is politely peppered with
"Yes, ma'am, no ma'am," Aubert suffers from major depression. When
his condition worsened a few months ago, he was unable to keep his
job as a grocery-store shelf stocker.
