The Lucas Fiorella Friendship Bench is Canadian not-for-profit corporation that launched in April 2015 after a student committed suicide after suffering from depression for many years. In the aftermath of his death, Lucas’s family and friends learned about his silent battle but also his efforts to reach out and save other students who were also suffering. A number of Lucas’s high school and university friends and classmates reported that he took the time to reach out to them when he sensed they were suffering from anxiety or depression.
