“Don’t Mask Your Feelings” is a new suicide prevention video encouraging people to talk about their mental health and how they are feeling.
Part of North Lanarkshire Council’s “Let’s Talk” campaign, the video covers the pressures people might feel to hide their true feelings, especially during the pandemic.
There are also resources and contact information to help, including:
- Samaritans by phone: 116123 (free 24 hour service)
- Breathing Space by phone: 0800 838587 (free, open 6pm – 2am)
- for young people, ChildLine by phone: 0800 1111
“Don’t hide your feelings behind a mask. Talk to someone you trust. It will be the first step towards feeling better.”
