It is of course incredibly sad news about Robin Williams. But the reaction online - a renewed campaign to highlight depression by nearly everyone - is one good thing that can be taken from it.
I never use social media as a soapbox, or to express any real personal feelings.. but the reaction to last night’s news has inspired me
So I didn’t make this for ‘likes’ or kudos - just in the hope that it will get shared.. It’s a very simple message: the first step is tell someone
We have a great organisation here in Ireland - www.aware.ie - and of course there are more here and around the world.. And also - there are mates, family.. Just tell someone if you’re worried that you’re not just feeling down
Please share :)
