Aaron Rose and Wasif Husain chat with Michael Landsberg about mental health issues and Bell Let’s Talk day. Landsberg shares his story about his struggle with depression, the moment he realized he could help, and an emotional story about saving someone’s life. They talk about how professional athletes and men in particular deal with and mask mental health issues. With suicide accounting for 24 per cent of all deaths among 18 to 24 year olds, they discuss how today’s youth can notice and help their peers struggling with mental health issues. Lastly, they talk about how to get involved in Bell Let’s Talk day on Jan. 25 and support mental health related issues the rest of the year through Landsberg’s website sicknotweak.com.
