Facing a severe mental health crisis in 2017, I was extremely depressed and suicidal. All I could think about was ending my life. I had everything I ever wanted in life - a good job, 2 great kids and an amazing wife - but I wanted my life to end. I was fortunate and was able to get quick help through intense treatment through a hospitalization program, medication management by a great psychiatrist and CBT through a wonderful therapist and a peer support group. Without those pillars and my supportive wife and family, I know I wouldn't be here today. Even though I still struggle with it, I am in a better place and know that this is treatable and suicide isn't the only option. I want to help spread the word that there is help available and it can help! Thank you in advance for your support.
