Twenty-six-year-old Blake claims his mother forced him into a mental hospital twice as a child; He says he feels like he lives in the shadow of the father who abandoned the family.

Blake’s sister, Sarah says, “Mental illness runs in our family. My dad would talk to people that weren’t there. He burned books in the barbeque pit. There was something that definitely wasn’t right.”
