An important story on mental health

I spoke to the father of a 19-year-old University of Michigan swimmer who died by suicide earlier this month.

To an outsider, Ian Miskelley had so much going for him. But his father, Steve, wants people to understand that depression is not sadness. It is a disease, and Ian battled demons since he was 11 years old.

Steve wanted as many people to read this story as possible in the hopes of destigmatizing mental health issues.

Here it is: A father speaks out after his son, a Michigan swimmer, takes his own life

While far less important, here are a couple of other stories I’ve written recently:
