Episode 2: David Reynolds
"I wanted to be a representative for men who struggle to open up about their feelings and dark spots. We're all human. It's okay talk about stuff. I got involved in the web series to gain a better understanding of myself. I never spoke quite as openly before this series. I feel a weight has been lifted. Not completely but, definitely lifted. It's important to talk about mental health because without communication, we eat ourselves up. We need each other. Talk."
