This cause is close to my heart and has affected me and my family personally. I lost an amazing brother to suicide over 15 years ago. He was a philanthropist, an entrepreneur, a nature lover and an incredible dad and husband. He struggled with depression for years and seeing no other solution for his pain eventually took his life. He is missed everyday and now has two grown daughters and three granddaughters. We have missed him terribly and he has missed out on so much. Not a day goes by that we don't think about him and the positive impact he has made on our lives.
Please help me spread the word about mental health and the resources that are available. There is help out there and lives can change for the better. It's important for people especially teens to know they are not alone and they don't need to suffer in silence.
