Everyone has mental health. It needs to be seen alongside physical health as something which affects us all and should be talked about without fear or mental reservation. This week, why not continue to help break down these barriers by having a chat with a friend, family member or a colleague and think about your own wellbeing too.
CALM: Campaign Against Living Miserably is one of many charities doing incredible work.
Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK Suicides were male. Everyone has low moments and many of us have had suicidal thoughts of feelings at some point in our lives. It does not mean that is the answer. There are always options, people who you know, don’t know, can or can’t see, who care and can help. To be vulnerable and to open up is sometimes the hardest thing to do and takes immense courage. Talk it over or start a conversation with someone.
