This is a post from Facebook from a local very talented girl in relation to Mental Health – Saoirse was kind enough to come along to our Ecumenical Service to give us a live performance. Thanks Saoirse.
Mental health effects 99% of us throughout our lives so I decided to write a song to raise awareness! I know mental health is topical the past few weeks but the reality is it should be topical every week! Get talking, raise awareness. It’s okay not to be okay, Let people know you’re there for them, you’d be surprised how many people believe they are an annoyance, they would rather die inside than be a burden to anyone! Im not just talking to my own generation I’m talking to everyone. it’s time we opened their eyes to the reality that this country is living in, we are losing too many people belonging to the future generation to mental health. We need people to start talking. There is help out there. This is my song called ‘open your eyes’
