You can thrive regardless of what you are experiencing today.Musician, JJ McGuigan shares his personal story of being diagnosed with depression and obsessive compulsive disorder as a teenager. He was able to receive the treatment he needed and now uses his music and his platform to advocate for all those who are struggling with some form of mental health.
