We are here. And one day we won't be. One day we won't have any tomorrows left and all our yesterdays will have been in vain. But we don't stop. We all realise that we are on the same side and support each other. We need to help people because we can. If you and I are here, we can. The question that remains is will we?
Whilst the causes of suicide are complex, and individual deaths can rarely be attributed to one particular factor, we do know that the economic circumstances of individuals, communities and wider society is a major influencing factor in the overall rate of suicide.
'Should' is a suffocating presence that cannot be seen but can be felt with the momentous force of a gathering typhoon. It is the test you could never get full marks on; the boss you could never impress; the partner you could never please and a complete misdirection of your energy.
The connection that children had with the characters in books extended well beyond just dressing up. Children have such strong emotional connections to literature, and we know that through story they learn a great deal about their own emotional world.
Keep it simple and practical. Combating depression and other mental health conditions is about you controlling the illness, and not letting it control you. It's as necessary to regain mastery over the weekly shop as it is over the inner-most workings of your mind.

Self-injury awareness day falls on the 1st of March. Conversations about self-injury can be triggering for many of us, so why raise awareness and encourage people to talk about it?
Being with somebody with anxiety is not a burden in any way. Neither of you are victims and if you chose to be with a person experiencing an anxiety disorder, life won't be too much different. However it may require a little more patience, care and a better understanding of one another - Which will only bring you closer together.
If you relate to any of this, know that it is possible to recover, to rediscover balance, there are things in place to help you and I know it's a scary step to take but I am living proof that you won't regret it; there is no shame in asking for help and no greater strength than the overcoming of inner turmoil.
Today the minister must set out a concrete plan of action to ensure that no prisoner pays the penalty of their life. It is deeds, not words, which are now needed. We can't turn back the clock for those who have already been let down by our criminal justice system, but the Government has the power to banish this pitiful period to the history books.
We must address the stigma associated with mental health. We heard from many women that they fear being seen as a 'bad mother' and having their child taken away from them. Women are frequently made to feel guilty that they're not the 'perfect mother.
