Today is World Mental Health Day

It seems almost ridiculous that we should have a whole day devoted to being aware of our own health but until telling people you’re struggling becomes as normal and everyday as drinking a cup of Lemsip because you’ve been sniffing then we have some work to do.

Someone very close to me has struggled with depression for more than a decade and there have been periods of sunshine and periods of intense storms. He has done all manner of things to regulate it, with varying degrees of success. The one thing that has proved the most useful, however, is to talk. And sometimes that’s as simple as having an open conversation with yourself to say “am I Ok?” because sometimes the answer is no but it takes the question to realise that.

Today, and every day, I encourage you to ask the question of yourself and if the answer is no then act – sit down and have a cup of tea with someone and start untangling. Of course, you can also lean on the amazing work of charities such as the Samaritans (116 123), CALM (0800 58 58 58) and our company charity Mind (0300 123 3393) because they’re here to help and they do.
