Personal Hero - Robert Nash

Personal Hero - Robert Nash


At the age of 17, Robb Nash suffered from a horrible car accident that quickly put an end to his dream of playing sports. Suffering from severe depression he decided he no longer wanted to live. Nash however managed to go through this darkness and at the other end decided he wanted to help other children that might be suicidal. Nash goes around the country speaking to children and often at the end of his presentations he will be handed unused suicide notes - a gesture from the child that allows them to symbolically release their suicidal thoughts. Recently Nash had 120 signatures from the suicide notes tatooed on his arm. This now serves as a visual representation of his commitment to help depressed youth.
