While Alisha shared the above photo with a caption drawing attention to Project Semicolon, Tommy explained his own personal experience with depression and how he hopes to inspire others to pull through.
“Today was a magical day. Another day to be grateful to be alive,” he wrote. “I struggled with addiction and depression issues through high school and early college. I reached out and asked for help. At the time, I thought my life was over, I thought I’d never live past the age of 21. Today I’m grateful to be alive, in this new chapter of life in recovery, standing with my colleagues and friends, making art that helps other people.”
