dge. We need to talk to schools, workplaces, and communities about suicide, about mental health in general. It is difficult to have conversations about this topic, it is frightening to tell your own story, even to those who are closest to you, but it is so important. If it could save even one life, doesn’t that make it worth it? Let’s keep talking about this. Let’s keep sharing our stories, our struggles, and our emotions. Let’s work to remove the stigma and shame surrounding suicide and change the world for the better!
nstoppable train that is Love Island worries me most because, to me, it means one of two things. Either the progress we have apparently made as a society in reducing the stigma around mental health and improving attitudes is all fake and is nothing more than a trend for people to get more likes and clout on the internet and no one really wants to fight for genuine change. Or protecting people’s mental health, preserving someone’s life, is simply not as important to people as some low-rate evening entertainment.
