WRITTEN BY NICOLE BEST
From the age of 13 or 14, I have memories of things that I now know were depression. When you're an artist, you have a very unstructured lifestyle that can lead to a lot of issues and I've taken the opportunity to use the platform I have to spread awareness about mental health.
