How do you cry, how do you express emotion, and how do you admit you're struggling when everything you've been taught tells you to man up and get on with it? Paul McGregor is a mental health advocate. In 2009, Paul lost his Dad to suicide. It came as a shock to all as there were no warning signs, and at 19, Paul personally struggled to deal with it. He overworked, chased success and distracted himself from the grief. So shortly after his Dad's suicide, Paul too found himself in a dark place, suffering with depression and fearing he'd follow in his Dad's footsteps. Luckily he found a way to recovery, and now runs a successful online men's fashion magazine. Paul creates daily content spreading awareness around mental health, and is a strong believer that we shouldn't be ashamed of our stories, we should let them inspire others."--Provided by publisher.
