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.
This issue is really important. We’ve all known people who have gone: people who couldn’t face this world that we live in. I feel like it’s really, really difficult navigating our way through life. I hope this doesn’t sound flippant, because it’s certainly not intended to be, but I’m amazed that more people don’t succumb to serious depression.
Mild depression is almost like the default state for human beings. I really don’t want that to sound like it’s trivialising a subject that’s very, very serious. Especially for men, it always has been. Irish people have this susceptibility to melancholy, and I think it’s there at the most gregarious of gatherings. It’s always there beneath the surface.
Thankfully I don’t think I’ve ever had a serious experience of it, but that malaise is out there. The more it’s talked about the better.
