I have known Corey for over 30 years and he has always been a close friend. Even though you are close friends you never know what one is going through and I know first hand the struggles with mental health. I am a alcoholic in recovery and know the struggles, but Corey has always been there for me and helped me through tough times.  I’ve read his testimonial and am so proud of him for opening up and sharing.
