AND AS MY LIFE BECOMES ALL CABARET
Mental Health problems can affect anyone at any stage of our lives. The problem with being male whilst experiencing this is the pressure that society exerts on us to not show emotion. To not talk about how we feel.
For my ex-boyfriend, this sadly meant he ended up taking his own life. He joined another 800,000 people that year who had committed suicide.
We cannot as a society allow this to continue. Not just for men but for EVERYONE.
We have a sickness epidemic. Depression is more prevalent than we even wish to acknowledge. But we need to talk about mental health, and we need to do it now.
