Today is World Mental Health day, a day to help people be aware of mental health issues, how they can effect people and how to sustain good mental health. Everybody suffers from mental health issues in one way or another, some more than others, some unknowingly and some who can get on with their life regardless of what issues they may have. Unfortunately for some of us mental health issues can get in the way of everything from friendships, relationships, menial daily tasks, hobbies and in Billy Rohan’s case his career too. In this short video Billy discusses how his mental health issues got in the way of his career in skateboarding and how he’s come to deal with living with manic depression and bipolar disorder.
If you or a friend are suffering from mental issues or aren’t sure what mental health issues are and would like to know more please visit the Mental Health Foundation’s website. No one is alone in this, there is plenty of help for those who need it, don’t suffer in silence!
