A mix of comedy and drama with a dash of science and research, Frozen In The Toilet Paper Aisle Of Life looks honestly at how one person lives with anxiety and depression with the hope that an honest look will help someone else break free from the stigma of mental illness and find their own path to achieving mental health.
