Mental health, front and centre

I’ve just read your article on the front of The Telegram for Dec. 11, related to the issue of mental health and headlined “Depression can be a dark place.”

I want to say how wonderful, and hats off to you for choosing to place this story on the front page and not, as most times, left hidden in the back.

So many suffer in silence with depression and most times are too sick to realize they are sick, and sadly, fall victim with a tragic outcome, leaving behind so many loved ones that will continue the cycle, and bear the deep dark sadness themselves.

To all those who understand, may this small letter to the editor be of some comfort, to let you know how important you are, and there are many who care, and wish you every success in finding peace as you battle and persevere with the challenges that accompany this miserable disease.

With heartfelt wishes to all, may this holiday season be bright and the new year filled with much delight
