Hutchinson offers an autobiographical essay on his history of depression. He mentions his suicide attempt in his teenage years and his everyday battle with depression. Hutchinson argues that others are quick to define him by his diagnosis, and describes how they write off his choices as manifestations of mental illness. He offers that diagnoses can be harmful and limiting. When someone has their gallbladder removed, their everyday behaviors are not accounted to their digestive issues. He critiques words like "hysterical" which have sexist roots; he glosses over his identity as a gay man and instead focuses the conversation on mental health. In his conclusion, Hutchinson stresses the importance of the destigmatization of mental health problems for teenagers.
