In COT we raised up Ava, Duggars Brother, H-bombs friend who just lost her mom, my buddy just finishing chemo. YHC also brought up the recent suicides in the news and the support needed for those with mental illness. Much like the exercises we do, we are not professionals but we are here for each other and the COT is a place where you can share and look for support. YHC likes to describe depression like a basketball bouncing down a set of stairs. The medication can block the ball from going any further, but it takes work and support to start moving it back up. Depression hits men in a disproportionate way, and YHC can attest to the power of our fellow F3 brothers in helping with the problem. To get the help of professionals or help a brother, the number is
1.800.784.2433(suicide hotline) or 713.468.5463 (Harris county hotline). Take care, brothers.
