‘I’ve talked about this before but I can’t stress enough how important it is to seek help when your feeling down or in your darkest moments.

‘Let’s all take a second to reach out to those in need’

‘I’ve struggled with Anxiety & Depression since I was in the 5th grade & it’s not something that should go untreated or uncared for.

‘I know a lot of people don’t understand mental illness & pass it off as ppl being dramatic…but it’s a chemical Imbalance that no one wants to struggle through. It’s not easy.’

He furthermore added: ‘Let’s all take a second to reach out to those in need of help & those who just need someone to talk to or some encouragement. A little love goes a long way. My heart is with my fellow survivors & ppl struggling through this disease…you aren’t alone.’

World Mental Health Day took place yesterday, Tuesday 10 October.
