I always thought my buddy Nick Petrella was social, successful, and happy. I had no idea that he struggled with mental illness until 2011 when he was formally diagnosed with Severe Depression and Anxiety. In November 2013 Nick began his personal mission to raise awareness for mental health and break the stigma associated with mental illness. Nick came on the Taz Show to talk about his experience and the current Mental Health issues facing those in the FM96 listening area.
