HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts ... these are tough topics to talk about, but one Godwin High School student is now opening up.

On NBC12 at 5 p.m. Thursday, Drew Wilder talks to Charles Shelton, who got help after a suicide attempt his freshman year and is sharing how others can, too.

Now he and his friend, Haley Brennan, are doing what they can to make sure other teens feel like they always have someone to talk to.

If you need help or more information, call the Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or text "help" to 741-741.
