Talking About It - Depression and Suicide
A short while ago, my twin brother and I got together with the BBC to film a piece about our struggles with depression and the oddness of two twins having the same condition but manifesting it in different ways. Alastair's depression pulled him out of Uni and functioning was difficult while I stayed functional but turned to coping mechanisms like alcohol, pills and an eating disorder.
This video is an open conversation with us airing out stories that we haven't shared even with one another to break the stigma around mental health. I hope you find it healing.
