Inspired by his own personal experiences with mental illness, Calvin G. Seino, better known as DJ Tryfe, decided to turn his 30th birthday celebration into the Viribus Ball to raise money and awareness to mental health and wellness in the Black community.

We caught up with DJ Tryfe during an Instagram Live interview (below) where he opened up and shared his journey with mental illness, overcoming suicidal attempts and more.
