Like so many people Ross struggled with his mental health. He had ups and downs and, over the years, had experienced some stronger bouts of depression which he sought professional support and spoke to family and friends for but for the rest of the time he was just Rossco - a happy, fun, kind, talented and successful man. We truly believe he was all these things but also acknowledge that this sat alongside his mental ill health. For us one of the saddest and scariest things about mental health is the way it can be masked – do we, or even they, really know what’s going on inside their head?
There is so much wonderful work going on to try and support men suffering from mental health and to help tackle stigma. BUT suicide remains the number one killer in the UK of men under 45. We need to change this.
We want to raise awareness, tacks stigma and try to strengthen the availability of support for those suffering from ill mental health who simply cannot recognise the help they need for themselves. Every penny raised, every conversation had, every awareness raising activity done is one step forward in turning the tide on mental health. Thank you for all of your support. Xxx
