Thank you for doing this. Mental health and suicide prevention is a cause I feel very strongly about. I'll make a donation once I'm home.

Much appreciated, Eng! Yeah, people are starting to wake up to how prevalent and debilitating mental health problems are. It's not long since depression and suidice in Ireland were in the category of "things that don't happen, and if they do we don't talk about them". Someone dying by suicide was a dark stain on a family, and talking about problems like that would probably end in your ostracisation. I feel like things are starting to get better, though, and people are becoming more open about things like this.
