Cowart's Common Room
Mental Health Day

Thinking today of all the Cooers who either suffer from the Black Dog or other suchlike problems, or who have family who do.

Lampworkbeader's Avatar I think there is hardly a person in the whole wide world that hasn't 'been there' in some form or another. It's so good we are all so much more open nowadays. My mother suffered from severe mental health problems for years and it was never ever mentioned in the family until it was way too late to offer her the help she needed.

KitKatCot's Avatar A kind thought, Withy.

It is good that this subject is out in the open.

My Black Dog has been in a cage for over 20 years, but I still hear his chain rattling now and again.

Camilla's Avatar Thank you kindly Withy, living with a manic depressive has taken its toll over the years and although I am a optimistic fun loveing gal it has rubbed off on me at times with the old black dog coming .

Did you see the chap on The One Show BBC1 on Monday evening think his name was Jeff Efferson he talked on the subject of mental health.
