Back Again: Mental Health

It’s good to be back to writing blogs after a lengthy absence. The issue of mental health has been in the news, even headline, news more often recently than I can ever remember. The media not only acknowledge the issue, but hope to foster a broad discussion. There have been news articles about the mental health of university students, primary school students and footballers.At the government level, there’s now a minister to delve into the issue of suicide. It seems society is beginning to engage in openly addressing this social issue. There’s even an acknowledgment that better mental health is the foundation of good physical health. All we need now is some certainty as to how those who need help get help and the funding to go along with it. There’s still a long way to go.
