Brought to Reality was started by Nick Bales who’s mission was raising awareness for teen mental health. Sadly, Nick took his own life before finishing H.S. His family continues to bring awareness to this issue in his memory.
"I had a childhood friend that was like a brother to me up until I was in the third grade and he was in seventh. He hung himself from a tree in his front yard. I remember standing in his yard and looking up at the tree with such curiosity. As if the tree had all the answers. But the tree stood silent, and all I could think about was him hanging from it. That visual played in my head over and over again, like a horror movie. My parents never mentioned the word suicide, I think they were trying to protect me, but I figured it out anyway."
Nick Bales started Brought To Reality as a way to have a positive influence on the youth. People in today's world should not be so stuck on following the trends but we should be fixated on starting our very own.
Even if the rest of the world hates it keep doing it because you love it.
