Hill first went public with his personal struggles after an online outburst in which told a constituent to “f*** off.”

“I allowed my own public frustrations or my own private frustrations and intensities become public so it became necessary for me to deal with it and admit publicly what I was dealing with,” he told Martell.

Hill took a month off work and began regularly speaking with a therapist. He’s now back on the job and taking his mental wellbeing seriously, he says.
