As a teen, Lacey’s depression and suicidal thoughts were so pervasive
that she did not know if she would live past the age of 16.
She is now a social worker helping others.
Lacey shares about her family’s inability to speak openly about mental-health challenges
before she opened that conversational door.
She credits her grandmother, who then disclosed the generations-long family history of depression,
which allowed Lacey to have hope for a future.
