Society holds a stigma about depression and anxiety. Musician Faris Khalifa is working to change that.

Faris was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety in 2003. In recent years, his friends have opened up to him about their own struggles with depression.

This left Faris wondering why those who suffer with depression are too afraid to speak about it.

He created this video in the hopes of inspiring others to talk about their struggles and raise awareness of mental illness.
