We invited a chorus of artists, writers, musicians, broadcasters, sports stars and more to contribute to Now We’re Talking, a mental health campaign, run in partnership with Lyons Tea and Pieta House. Kodaline frontman Steve Garrigan (far right) talks about a recent experience which made him think again about the importance of mental health.
Only last week, where I grew up, there was a 12-year-old boy who was being bullied online and he took his own life. It’s horrible. I can only imagine: school is tough anyway for kids. Kids can be cruel to each other, especially teenagers. I can’t even comprehend what it would be like right now with the internet. If you’re being bullied at school, you go home and then you’re being bullied at home, only that it’s online. I don’t really know what can be done. I think the problem is much bigger than we all realise.
