”Our world runs rampant with despair, isolation, and pain. I want to use my experiences to offer hope, healing, and restoration for others who feel lost and, in their own minds, believe that there is no hope,” says Rob. “There is a ‘silent crisis,’ the number of people with a mental health issue is growing at an astonishing rate. It’s time to bridge the gap with mental health systems and provide informal support for all who deal with various issues. It’s time for men to RISE AS LIONS.”
