"We need to teach people that they can be vulnerable."

"We need to teach people that they can be vulnerable. We weren’t created to just live alone in a bubble; to go to work, come home, put on a smile and post a happy photo on instagram and pretend our lives are perfect.“If you are struggling, please don’t suffer alone. Please don’t go into this bubble where your friends don’t know that they need to be there for you. There’s no shame, we’re all human, we all go through shit, and we all need help sometimes.”A short clip from my speech at Care for Life Suicide Prevention Network's World Suicide Prevention Day event on Sep 11th.
