Ryan Meets Up With Melyssa Ford To Discuss Her Recovery From That Horrific Car Accident

"The whole concept of mental health is an ongoing process. It is a conscious decision to be happy."

Ryan was with Melyssa Ford just a week before her horrific car accident last year. Now, they're meeting up again to discuss everything that's changed since.

In this Black Ink Crew Chicago bonus clip, Melyssa explains how seriously her life and her outlook changed following that near-fatal car crash. She reveals just how much physical and mental therapy was required to dig herself out of that dark place, which gets Ryan talking about the situation he's going through with Phor.

Ryan took him on to Steve Harvey's talk show after finding out that Phor was having suicidal thoughts. Even though he was worried about looking weak for coming out about his mental health on such a huge platform, the response toward Phor and his bravery was nothing but positive.

Oh, and Melyssa has some interesting advice for getting your serotonin levels up, which you can try at your own discretion...
