IT NEEDS TO STOP
Excuse the rather frank and basic headline but this needs to be heard.
I came across an amazing campaign today and was so pleased to see this cause highlighted. Just last week my own hometown was devastated by the terribly sad suicide of a handsome young lad with the whole world at his feet.
Nobody will ever know what made him believe there was nothing worth living for. Nobody will ever truly understand his pain. It’s just too late.
This is unfortunately a situation we are seeing more and more of and we must do something about it now…
We do so much to keep our toddlers and babies safe, but as children get older, the lines of how to care for them become more blurred and it can be a minefield knowing what to do to help.
So, I am over the moon to see other young people getting involved to spread the word to their peers and younger generation that it is okay – we are all going through things we may not know how to deal with but there is support and there is always – always – hope!
YOU’D NEVER BELIEVE Campaign is a brilliant step in the right direction and aims to make teenagers realise that it isn’t at all uncommon to be facing struggles and that is OKAY TO NOT ALWAYS BE OKAY. It is part of life and things will always get better if you seek help.
Please watch this video and thanks to the amazing Miss Pork Pie for bringing this to my attention and big respect to Ella Stearn for creating this support network .
