It’s rarely talked about, but most people know someone who is suffering from depression. In fact 1 in 5 people will struggle with mental illness this year. Singer-songwriter, Nick Punal knows the devastating toll depression can take on others.

His brother-in-law committed suicide 10 years ago, leaving many questions unanswered. Nick has combined his musical talents with a desire to raise awareness, hosting unique gigs around Sydney. (Image: Meredith Farmer from Flickr)
