I regularly read Glamour magazine, and despite the stigma associated with women’s magazines such as these, I do quite enjoy it.
Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week at Warwick University, and it featured a number of engaging and inspiring talks from a range of speakers on issues from anorexia and suicide to personality disorders and depression. Whilst the awareness was brilliant, I think we need to be focusing on mental health for more than just a week – we need to be getting our 5-a-day everyday.
“I hate it that you smoke. I hate loving the person that you are; the smiley, passionate, loving, talented, talkative person… that chooses the worst way possible to de-stress.”
