In 2011, Mike was just beginning his retired life when, later that year, tragedy struck. His world was changed forever when he lost his oldest son, Michael Anthony, to suicide. The sudden and shocking awareness that he was clueless about mental illness in general, and Mike’s struggle with bipolar and depression specifically, devastated him. In the years since, Mike has been trying to overcome the guilt he felt having failed as a father. Mike met Tracy and Hallie at a NAMI Maine event in 2016 and quickly realized he shared their vision. He decided to join with Untold Strength in memory of his son in the hopes that he can help others from experiencing this pain and suffering.
