Talking about mental health issues can save lives


Although this very powerful and brave story is about fathers talking to their children about their mental health, it is about having people be comfortable in talking about mental health to a much broader group - everyone they are close to. 

The sad reality is that one of the reasons people are not comfortable is most are isolated by those they feel they are close to, which has led to not just the mental health issue, but an epidemic of loneliness. To have people be comfortable in talking about their mental health condition, we must all be comfortable in having that discussion with them.
