March 28: Councillor’s commendable interview
Cllr Shane Clifford’s interview (Limerick Leader, last week) and his sharing of experience of depression is a welcome, enlightening and commendable contribution to the need to open and understand the experience of that one in four of the population which will suffer from a mental health issue in their lifetime. It is especially welcome that more and more community leaders such as Shane, sports stars such as Alan Quinlan and other well known Irish people such as singer Niall Breslin (Bressie), as well as many business people, are prepared to share their difficult experience. The expression of these experiences helps to open up a discussion and create a better understanding of depression.
