Jy is nie alleen nie

ELKE 90 minute in die Verenigde Koninkryk gaan 'n lewe deur selfmoord verlore.

Dit diskrimineer nie, die lewens van mense in elke uithoek van die samelewing raak – van haweloses en werkloses tot bouers en dokters, werklikheidsterre en sokkerspelers.

Dit is die grootste moordenaar van mense onder die ouderdom van 35, dodeliker as kanker en motorongelukke.

En mans is drie keer meer geneig om hul eie lewe te neem as vroue.

Tog word daar selde van gepraat, 'n taboe wat dreig om voort te gaan met sy dodelike rampokkery, tensy ons almal stop en kennis neem, nou.

Dit is hoekom The Sun het die You’re Not Alone-veldtog van stapel gestuur.

Die doel is om praktiese advies te deel, bewusmaking en afbreek van die hindernisse wat mense in die gesig staar wanneer hulle oor hul geestesgesondheid praat, ons kan almal ons bes doen om lewens te help red.

Laat ons almal belowe om hulp te vra wanneer ons dit nodig het, en luister uit vir ander… Jy is nie alleen nie.

As jy, of iemand wat jy ken, het hulp nodig om geestesgesondheidsprobleme te hanteer, die volgende organisasies bied ondersteuning:

Sharon then told viewers she had tried to take her own life many times in the past.

Her honest experience prompted Nicola to open up about her own past challenges.

Nicola said: “Thank you for what you’ve said, Sharon. I’ve felt quite emotional listening to it because I made an attempt on my own life in 2012 and it was therapy that saved me.

And I wish that I hadn’t waited to the point of attempting suicide to do it, but I think it was part of this ‘put on a brave face, the show must go on, don’t talk about what’s going on’ that led me to that point. I’ve seen a therapist since, they were amazing.

About a year ago I had to stop because I couldn’t afford it anymore and I didn’t want to start on a cheaper therapist.

But I’m sure there will come a point that I’m ready to go through it all again.

The soap star was best known for playing Nicola Rubinstein in Kroningsstraat in 2017.
