Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I'm shaving my head on my birthday this year. I want to raise awareness for mental health, depression and suicide. Big taboo subjects, but we encounter them every day. I think we need to normalise mental health and discuss it as you would any other illness. There is so much rumour and misunderstanding around mental health and depression I want to break the stigma.
Suicide can often be a last resort for many with ill mental health. It leaves families, friends and partners behind. We need to give more understanding to these bereavements and support those who are in this unique and difficult situation. Also let's talk about suicide, feeling this way is often a symptom of ill mental health. It's nothing bad or to be ashamed of, it's is part of the illness.
