Lunch time entertainment!

Bored on your lunch time? Here are a few things you can do to get the most out of your lunch time:

If you have the time and you know you friends aren’t busy why not call one of them? They will appreciate that you care about them enough to make the time to call and you will have had a good conversation while enjoying your lunch.

World Health Day 2017

This year, the World Health Organisation’s World Health Day campaign focuses upon people suffering with depression. This is due to their latest estimates that more than 300 million people are living with the illness – an increase of more than 18% since 2005. The campaign aims to connect with those with depression and help them speak out about it, as well as seek and get help from others.

There are different types of depression. One of which is a single bout of major depression, or you can have recurring episodes. If depression lasts two years or more, it would be called a persistent depressive disorder. One less common type of depressions is called bipolar disorder, or manic-depressive illness. This involves an alternating cycle of extreme highs, or manias.

Depression can affect people of all ages, under any circumstance that has maybe lowered their self-esteem or a major episode of grief that has spiralled into depression. It can cause a mental anguish and can impact on a person’s ability to perform even the simplest everyday tasks. It can damage relationships with friends and family and you may even be in your room all the time. At worst, depression can lead to suicide – which is now the second leading call of death among people 15 – 29 years old.

But, depression can be prevented. It can be treated and as much as people suffering may not feel it, they all have someone who is there for them. No one Is ever alone. A better understanding of how depression can be triggered and how to reduce the stigma associated with the condition will hopefully lead to more people seeking for help.

Use the hashtag #letstalk to connect and speak out for help if you are or suspect you may be suffering from depression.
