Comedian Mike King describes himself as an egotistical bully when on stage, all to get a laugh. But he's says that he's not that man anymore.
Drugs and alcohol became a daily habit. He'd perform on stage while high and the drugs would help to sedate his depression.
At 51 years old, and six and a half years on, he's been clean ever since, and is now spreading the message of anti-suicide to our country's youth.
Despite being a bonafide millionaire only 10 years ago, Mike says he'd never been more miserable in his life, but all that has now changed.
He's told his troubled journey to thousands of kids around the country, hoping they too will learn from his mistakes.
