It's a serious problem for many, yet it's taboo to talk about.
For a long time, Kevin Breel felt like he had been living two different lives. He was a friend, a son, a brother, a stand up comedian, and a teenager. He was also captain of his basketball team, the drama and theater student of the year, the English student of the year, someone on the honor roll, and a kid who went to every party.
He was also a person who struggled intensely with depression - every day.
He says that real depression isn't being sad when something goes wrong. Real depression is being sad when everything in your life is going right.
In this video Kevin tells his story and talks about his struggle with suicide. He explains why we will only find answers when we stop being afraid to ask questions. He believes true strength will come when we accept our weaknesses and stand strong together.
