-Road fatalities in 2013 resulted in 1,713 deaths in the UK.
-Suicide alone racked up 6,708 deaths in the same year in the UK, with 10 x more that attempted suicide. It's actually the leading cause of deaths in the UK between the ages of 20-34!

Now ask yourself a question...... How often do you see an advert on TV educating us about Poor Mental Health compared to Speeding/Drink Driving???

Having experienced mental health issues myself on 2 occasions during my working life (both linked to work, though with some outside influences too), I understand the feeling of hopelessness, and the personal stigma sufferers attach to their condition.
