1 in 5 people are depressed, anxious, bipolar, or otherwise living with a mental illness. For every two homicides committed in the United States, there are three suicides. 40,000+ people lose their battle with depression each year. Depression kills, and it kills so silently that after someone’s gone you may never know they were sick. Those who survive a loss are hurt. Those who survive an attempt are shamed. It’s time to end the stigma surrounding mental health and start encouraging those who are struggling to seek help. More importantly, we need to let those who struggle know they’re not alone -- this starts with us.

Great talk discussing hard to discuss subjection.

Thank you for sharing your experiences. I can't imagine that is particularly easily to do, but allowing for that kind of vulnerability really allows others to connect with your message, especially when that message hits home. Thank you.

Really impactful talk. Thanks for sharing this.
