Julie Peters told us about her beloved younger brother who was "all boy." As a kid he was rambunctious and lovable. As he got older he had trouble in school; the family learned he had learning disabilities. Still he was a big favorite with the girls. Eventually he dropped out of school and had problems with anxiety, depression and suicidal tendencies. He never talked about his problems and never asked for help because that's "not what real men do.” Medical expenses and health problems exacerbated his despair until he took a decisive step.
