Blue Monday Bulls**t – Reduce The Stigma of Depression & Mental Health
Depression isn’t a one day a year thing, It doesn’t reach a peak on the 3rd Monday of January. It’s a debilitating life threatening condition. It needs to be taken seriously.
Suggesting that depression will peak, the storm will pass and begin to ease on Wonderful Tuesday, is not only stupid, but it also gives false hope to those who desperately need help.
There are over 6500 suicides in the UK each year, and many more thousands of attempts at suicide.
That’s the equivalent of a suicide less than every 2 hours.
Let’s not trivialise the importance of depression any more, lets erase Blue Monday from existence for the sake of the many millions who suffer more than a blue Monday every day.
