Below Deck Med’s David Pasco opens up about mental health

David used Instagram to shine a light on a stigmatized topic. He referred to mental health and depression as the “silent killer.” The deckhand declared the subject needs to be not only understood but discussed too.

In a brutally honest post, David recalled going on anti-depressants at a doctor’s recommendation. What followed next was him slipping further into the darkness with frequent lapses of time.

The pain got so bad, David was overcome with the feeling of just needing to sleep for days, even weeks. David worked up in a hospital, which was shown on Below Deck Med.
