With the decline in NHS care and treatment for mental health, maybe Robin William’s death can be a way to show how it can impact anyone, regardless of age/gender/race/ability, at any time. It also shows much we need to talk not stigmatise mental health. As someone with depression I know this only too well, as well as the feelings of reaching such a low that putting on the mask to be happy to the outside world when inside all is crumbling seems too much to bare any more. So please remember, if the first or even second person does not listen, we must not give up, we all matter.
