Many people suffer from mental illness. My family has a long history of depression and anxiety. I myself have suffered from depression. It is a darkness that cannot be described too well unless one walks the road.

Today a came across this article on former NHL’er Corey Hirsch. No one is immune to mental illness and his story shows that it strikes even the rich and famous. The story stirred a lot of emotion inside me as I read it. I kept relating and saying “I’ve been there”.

A few weeks back a vlogger I follow also recorded a piece on depression. It was raw, real and heartfelt. If you suffer from any type of mental illness know this, you are not alone. There is help available. You need not suffer in silence.

Thanks, Corey, Thanks, John.
