Although improving, it is still disappointing the clear stigma and general ignorance apparent in discussions I often have or hear about mental health when it is so prevalent.
On World Mental Health Day, we will be joining many supporters at "Walking Out of Darkness'' in London hosted by CLASP Charity - Counselling, Life Advice and Suicide Prevention. They battle tirelessly against the stigma surrounding mental illness and suicide offering practical support for those suffering and those around them. They are amazing in that they have a collaborative approach making this event a platform for any mental health or suicide prevention charities to come together, educate and fundraise. Their mission is powerful along with their clear message- ''YOU ARE NOT ALONE!''
Having experienced loss of a family member due to suicide and with a friend who is currently feeling they are in a situation with no solution, this is a cause very close to my heart.
