Kids Kept Giving This Man Their Suicide Notes, So He Tattooed Their Names On His Arm
Five hundred thirty-five unneeded suicide notes and counting.
The first time a teenager handed Robb Nash a suicide note was five years ago.
It's a place Nash had been himself. After barely surviving a car crash as a teen, he was forced to stop playing the sports he loved. It was a devastating blow.
Now he's collected 535 notes along with razor blades, bullets, and countless promises from the young people he talks to that they'll stop self-injuring or using drugs.
Nash travels around to schools, detention centres, and First Nations talking to youth about mental health, suicide, substance abuse, bullying, and finding hope even when things feel hopeless.
And as much as he's touched the lives of thousands of students, they've had an impact on him, too.
