Male suicide and mental health is a huge issue, every two hours a man in the UK takes his own life, that's 84 men who commit suicide, on average each week. Suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 45 in the UK and about 75% of all suicides are men. It is not uncommon for people to have passing thoughts about taking their own life but it’s when these thoughts become more intrusive or over whelming then it might be time to share these thoughts. People are being encouraged to talk about this difficult issue, recently Project 84 created 84 individual sculptures and these where placed on ledges on the top of buildings in London for a few days at the end of March. Each figure represented a man lost to suicide and the friends and family helped with the creation of this project. The idea behind Project 84 is raise awareness and to get the conversation going about this difficult subject, to be more open and to raise the issue regarding the lack of support available.

Matt Haig wrote a best selling memoir about depression, "Reasons to stay alive". However my favourite book by the author is The Humans, a clever and wry book about the human condition as viewed by an alien on a mission, there are some very clever, funny and sad observations. There are loads of great quotes in the book but this is one of my favourites,
"Advice for a human: Dark matter is needed to hold galaxies together. Your mind is a Galaxy. More dark than light. But the light makes it worthwhile. Which is to say: don't kill yourself. Even when the darkness is total. Always know that life is not still. Time is space. You are moving through that galaxy. Wait for the stars.” Click here to read an article by Matt Haig.
"When the Bough Breaks" is an American documentary about postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis currently airing on Netflix.

Attachment styles and how they impact our adult relationships
As adults our attachment styles develop as a result of the repetitive interactions we had with important caregivers or parents as babies and growing in to childhood. When we begin to understand our attachment style we begin to understand ourselves better, how we are within relationships in our lives and how this now impacts us as adults. This is a useful and simple introductory article on attachment styles. Click here to read more.
