St. Gall’s and former Antrim keeper Chris Kerr has encouraged people to speak out and raise awareness of mental health issues in the lead up to World Mental Health Awareness Day.
We shouldn’t wait until the 10th of October each year to speak about this and raise awareness. If the last 2 years has taught us anything – is that our health is our wealth! Both physically and mentally.
If you’re struggling with anything in your life no matter how big or small it may seem, if it’s weighing you down, making you sad or miserable.
Don’t keep it to yourself, reach out to friends, family members or if it’s needed seek professional help from a GP, counsellor or a mental health professional.
We will see the hashtag over the next day or so if ‘It’s okay not to be okay’ and it’s a great and a brilliant way to raise awareness. But it’s a more important reminder that it’s completely Okay to ask or seek help when it’s needed.
It’s not a sign of weakness, if anything it’s a sign of strength.
Stay strong, reset, take deep breathe in & remind yourself that there is a lot of people who care about you.
Me being one of them – I’m not a professional but I’m willing and wanting to help in any way possible. A good problem shared is a problem halved
