Father Finds Happiness After Suicide Attempt

A MAN who tried to take his own life has finally found recovery after battling depression for years without a diagnosis, beginning his own mental health charity in the process. For Pat Lawson, growing up with depression wasn’t something he so much tried to hide as something he wasn’t even fully aware of. It wasn’t until he attempted suicide, age 30, that Pat sought the medical help he’d needed for so long - and finally shared with others the depression he had been battling alone all his life.
