As a fellow sufferer of both mental health and the blues I can completely relate

If ever anyone is feeling a bit down and just needs an ear to talk to, more than happy to help in any way I can

I agree. Des offers ostensibly sensible advise but I suspect it’s not at all that easy for many with mental health issues. I think it’s more incumbent on the rest of us to look out for people who may be suffering. Spotting changes in behaviour or an increasingly withdrawn demeanour. Then taking a genuine interest in them, listening & offering support. Inviting them down to StAns?
That last bit might be a bit risky. Maybe just invite them out for a beer. Or a coffee.

I had meant from the viewpoint of helping people, a neighbours young son suffers badly from depression, but eventually after much persuasion from his family and friends got into hockey through mencap, not only has he became a cracking player, but it’s helped him to get fit physically and his mentality is currently excellent.
In fact he has now represented England in an international hockey tournament.
This was a young man that wouldn’t even leave his room to wash dress or eat a few yrs back!
We all can do our bit to help!
