We need to talk about mental health. Worldwide there was over 3 quarters of a million deaths by suicide in 2016. It is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK with 3 out of 4 suicides in the UK being male. It's often the people you least suspect that suffer the most because they do not feel they can, want or have someone they can confide in. What's trivial to one person is the only that matters to another.
Mind and similar charities are doing so much to change the taboo surrounding mental health. Having someone, anyone to talk to saves lives and helps people get through the most challenging moments.
Admitting you are depressed or suffer from anxiety are not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength that you can still get through life everyday while suffering. Let's continue to change the way people see and understand mental health and help a charity like Mind do all the great things they are doing for mental health and awareness.
