Did you know that 8 people take their lives each and every day in Australia? And for every one of these people who takes their lives approximately another 20 make an attempt to take their lives. According to Psychologist and mental health expert, Dr. Happy, “Not everyone suffering mental ill-health will be curled up in a corner or tucked under their doona. Many more, in fact, will be sitting beside you on the bus or train, at work, or chatting to you over coffee or lunch. Take a minute, then, to ask ALL your friends and family, your colleagues and acquaintances if they’re OK today; it won’t take up much of your time and I guarantee it won’t be something you regret.” In this article, Dr. Happy shares his own personal experience with mental health and the advice he has to offer.
