This week was Mental Health Awareness Week. I was both shocked and surprised at how many people shared their own stories online. It was refreshing how it is more acceptable to talk about mental health.
Loughborough University hosted several events during 10th October. I managed to attend a talk by Alex da Silva. He was a truly inspiring speaker, who spoke from the heart, about his journey through recovery, the struggles with drugs, alcohol and depression. One thing I came away with was how important it is to listen to one another.
