But they don't know you are there to help until you reach out." Boynton said "talking about mental health, it's not, it's nothing to be ashamed about. We have seen so many people, sectors who have come out and talk about you or somebody else's experience in any kind of feeling of our mental challenges. Please feel free to talk to somebody.
