It was one year ago when MP David Sweet lost his daughter, Lara, to mental illness. Since Lara’s death, David and his wife Almut have been very open about their struggle and have continued to share Lara’s story, with the hope that others will find help. David provides encouragement for parents of children who are struggling with mental health challenges and addictions, and hope for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
