Just spoke to hundreds of people about my experience with mental illness & addiction recovery. This event #Boseffort was in honor of Bo DePaola, brother to one of my very best friends Katie. He passed away from overdose 2 years ago. It's kind of surreal to get to use my story for such a phenomenal cause to raise awareness about what we are still afraid to talk about as a culture--depression, bipolar, addiction, alcoholism, suicide. These things are so much more common than we want to believe and they look different on everyone. I'm truly honored to do my small part to pay it forward & help save lives. Thank you, God.
