Very. And prompted me to make a donation to the community trust. When the box comes up buying tickets I never add a donation but this has made me think differently about it.

I saw this on another blog and commented there. Mental health issues are finally being talked about more openly but, as this video interview demonstrates, often the difference between commuting suicide and being turned around is a small thing. In this case it was being asked if you wanted to play a game of football and his mum paying for football boots. The government has stated that provisions for mental health issues will be improved, but perhaps it is up to us all to be more aware of our friends & work colleagues well-being. Just showing your concern and interest in someone may make all the difference.

makes you realise what a small gesture in donating just a small amount can do, I want to say I am so proud to be a QPR fan but to be honest I am prouder of James as a person for taking that step and to talk about something that must be bloody terrifying and very upsetting to do.

Well done mate!

Like I know myself,depression is very difficult to live with
That's why I cycle and run it helps relieve anxiety and stress and I'm not so down then
I've got everything,a home and a family and a job I like
but you still get to the point you think what's the point in living
It's selfish as it affects all your family the way you get so negative about life
My tablets help and I'm on a high dose but they don't stop the depression totally
I've now got epilepsy and I lost my brother which I will never get over
But I still try to remain positive and every knock back you have to try and deal with it
Had it a long time and I get help and support from my family and friends
It's not a sob story just telling from my own experience
That lads story really struck a cord with me and I hope he tries to cope with it
