Presley Gerber is opening up about battling depression in hopes that his stories can help others avoid his “mistakes.”

“I’ve seen a lot of stuff and I’ve learned a lot of things,” the heavily tattooed son of supermodel Cindy Crawford said on Tuesday’s episode of the “Studio 22” podcast.

“What I hope I can do is have made the mistakes for other people, so they don’t have to make the same mistakes that I made.”

Gerber, 23, told listeners that he has been working on obtaining his real estate license and wants to dive “into mental health” and the community around it.

“I feel like it should be talked about a lot more than it is,” he said.

“Having struggled with mental health, depression and some other things that come along with that, I think that whether I help one person or a hundred people get out of that place that I was in at one point in my life, that’s all I need to do.”

Presley said he’s spent “a lot” of time in therapy trying to “look into [himself]“ over the years.

“It is such a big part of my life. It’s a 24/7 job, and there’s so much to it,” he explained.

“That’s really what I want to do: help people, whether you’re depressed, you’re struggling with something that is having a negative effect on your body. I mean it could be anything, and there’s no judgment.”

The model, whom Crawford shares with Rande Gerber, also said he’s brainstormed several business ideas related to mental health.

When he was 17, he belted out some tunes in the music studio because he “wanted an outlet” to “share some of my experiences with some people.”

He also “thought of literal clothing brands revolving around mental health” in an attempt to raise awareness for depression and other issues. Today, Gerber’s now working on a project called “Mental Health Mondays,” in which he will speak to professionals who have helped him on his own journey.

“That’s what’s getting me out of bed these days … is that hope that I’ve made the mistakes for a lot of people,” he shared.

“If they’re like me, well, then they’re going to want to do it the hard way. But if they want to listen, then I could save them a lot of hardship and a lot of struggling.”
