Three years ago, Patrick Brihan was a completely different person than he is today. He was a verbally aggressive 21-year old who lacked self-control and did not know how to interact politely with others due to his depression and anxiety. He had long hair that covered his eyes and would always wear a sweatshirt with the hood up. Patrick has a history of aggression and violence and has attempted to run away numerous times. He lied, lacked empathy for others, and was manipulative. He would not work, exercise, cook, or socialize with others, and showed no motivation for change. To learn more about Patrick, click here.
