News Anchor David Johnson Shares His Story

WPXI-TV News Anchor David Johnson made an appearance at our 10th Annual Education Conference last weekend for the second year in a row.

David told his family story of depression and suicide in the hope that people will begin to speak more openly about mental illness. In his case, a wonderful piece of family history had been hidden for years beneath the silence of stigma.
