BE KIND TO YOURSELF
By Lawrence Butterfield
Lol’s a senior psychiatric nurse and deals with mental health issues on a daily basis, but when it came to his own depression he realised he was in denial. His wife encouraged him to get help and a course of anti depressants eventually helped Lol. He now works towards breaking the stigmas around mental health issues and wants to encourage people to speak out about their own experiences.
