Yellow Bench Offers Hope

January 28, 2020

Lucas Fiorella was a typical teenager. He had good marks in school, lots of friends and always had a big smile. But he suffered in silence. Lucas dealt with depression and eventually took his own life. Now his Father, Sam, is on a mission to keep his son's spirit alive by inviting people to come and sit and talk on a special bench.

Fiorella encourages people to look beyond the smile. Common signs of depression include loss of passion, a change in sleeping patterns, and withdrawing from close friends and family.
