Mental Health Matters: Losing My Footing and Finding Some Ground

When I was 18 and a few weeks into my second semester of college, I had a bit of a mental breakdown. I say “a bit” because I’ve had breakdowns that, on the surface, were much worse, but in relation to my career in music, this one is significant.
