LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The loss of his sister is motivating Nicholas Blevins to raise a awareness around mental health.
His sister died by suicide after suffering from severe depression and battling mental illness for years.
Despite the ever-growing conversation surrounding mental illness, Nevada ranks as the lowest in the country for mental health access and services.
Research says 1 in 5 adults will experience mental illness.
Through social media, Blevins is hoping to share his sister's story and raise awareness.
