An Open Letter
I put a video together a few weeks ago and it got some great support from people. I hope it helped people in some small way. It seemed to strike a chord with people and a number of people spoke to me in the days after it was uploaded. My reason for putting the video together was to demystify Mental Health and make sure that the people that matter have a voice and a way to speak out if they need to speak out.
Looking back at my own problems that happened to me in 2014 and a few times before that I realise that using Facebook as a means of trying to deal with my problems was wrong , but that is only my opinion of course whatever a person decides to do to try and help themselves is good because the more people open up the better.
We are in the middle of exam season and stress levels are at their highest level and people will do anything to help themselves this time. Take it from someone who didn’t do a great Leaving Certificate, I am still here and it isn’t the be all and end all , trust me…. Just do the best you can and nobody will say a thing to you.
I just hope my efforts to highlight these issues will help people and make it easier for anybody to just start talking about anything that is troubling them. I know that I have probably contradicted myself by putting this on my website and also sharing on Facebook and Twitter but I really just really wanted to reach out to people.
My own issues have been well highlighted by different pieces I have recorded and written and I have now steeled myself not to end up in the same position that I was in back in 2014. I am more open with people about issues and hopefully this piece will say if Cian Mc Gibney , Mr quiet and conservative can be open so can I……
