it’s not right.
By all accounts, they should be happy successful you people.
But that Black Dog just keeps coming back.
At work, I’ve bought RUOK DAY cups and have sent emails to raise awareness.
I sent an email.
Talking about my colleague in Canberra who took her life last month.
That i KNOW that, while you might brush off an offer for help initially, it’s nice to know that people are there. For when you ARE ready for support and help.
Check in with friends and family.

Take care of each other.
