Andrew (whose last name is withheld for privacy reasons) was a gifted student and two-sport athlete entering his senior year at Muhlenberg College. But an injury during the first game of the football season left him on the sideline, and Andrew soon began to suffer from depression and insomnia. He hid his struggles from family and friends until his deteriorating condition landed him in the ER. With the support of loved ones and medical professionals, Andrew started his journey toward recovery. In 2014, he began to share his story in an effort to reduce the stigma around mental health issues and help others who may be struggling.
