Raising awareness of mental health issues is critical if we are to reduce the stigma attached to mnetal illness and help people recover in a safe and understanding environment.
Today is World Mental Health Day and the focus is on the “Black Dog” that is depression.
If you know someone who is depressed and don’t know how to deal with it take time today to find out more about this illness and read up on how you can help.
If you suffer with depression yourself, you must seek help. This is a treatable condition and you will get better. It just takes time. Go and see your GP or contact a relevant organisation for more information.
