Patient Leader

An accidental advocate, I tweet about suicide prevention, male depression, the Canadian Mental Health Association, Big White Wall and more. Advocated in support of bringing Big White Wall to Ontario. Adocated on behalf of a uniquely Canadian idea, Men's Mental Health Awareness Day. I share my struggle with depression and my recovery from a suicide attempt so that others can see there is a way out of the dark.

Patient Leader Hero Best in Show: Twitter

Although John is not new to Twitter, I am witnessing him open up more about his mental health & depression with each & every tweet. John's concern is not just for himself, but also for others who are struggling with these issues, so he reaches out to them even when he is attempting to fit in self-care for himself. John's tweets are SAVING LIVES!!
