The early 90's skateboarding brand DC shoes has released a short documentary to provide awareness about mental health problems in skateboarding.

Mental health issues range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to long-term conditions. Skateboarders also experience mental health issues but can get over them or learn to live with them, especially if you get help immediately.

Mental illness can make it difficult for someone to cope with work, relationships, and other demands.

The relationship between stress and mental illness is complex, but stress can worsen an episode of mental illness.

DC shoe rider, John Gardner, opens up about his mental health battles as he experienced suicidal thoughts and depression over the years on and off the board.

The 29-year-old talks about how meditation, breathing, and skateboarding helped cure or ease his depression.

The film features Stanford School of Medicine neurobiology and ophthalmology professor Andrew Huberman. He provides insight on how we can help ourselves from preventing dolefulness.

If your loved one shows signs of mental illness, have an open and honest discussion with them about your concerns.

You may not force someone to get professional care, but you can offer encouragement and support.

Please call the number below for anyone battling issues with mental health.
