Nick Petrella

Diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety in 2010, Nick initially felt shame and guilt. Over the next five years he saw a dozen different mental health professionals. He finally found a therapist who was able to help him and slowly began his recovery. With the support of his wife, his therapist, his friend at CMHA, his two young daughters and three dogs, Nick lives and breathes mental health awareness to reduce stigma and prove that recovery is possible every day. He proudly educates others and is the co-founder of Mental Health in Motion at Mohawk College where he is a professor.
