What next Checkpoint Charlie on the M4 and Stasi patrolling Severn tunnel junction East Berlin cold war style? No wonder people are so depressed about the future.
    Let's not turn this thread into one of those eh, there's plenty

    With winter coming I really do fear there things are going to get worse.
    Thats so sad, suicide is the leading cause of death for males under 45 , more than cancer , road accidents etc

    Yet the funding put into mental health for men is next to nothing

    Poor lad

    If so I'd like it to be a non-judgemental safe space, so no politics and no religion (nowt controversial), where you can talk about what's going on in your life etc... Happy to arrange a regular meeting if useful.
    too right

    Is heavy metal off the table ?

    There was a cartoon in one of the papers where joke was about choosing to take a break from being well informed in order to stay sane. I wouldn't suggest switching off completely forever but definitely agree with taking a break.

    It was probably the moustache, or maybe the flared trousers. Easily confused for a Yorkshireman.

    His best mate also committed suicide in the summer. It’s a worrying trend amongst younger people it seems, and I do think social media plays it’s part.

    Re: Lockdown/Mental Health

    Social media is relentless and obviously the main influencer in today's society. The younger generation are obviously more embroiled with whatever is on it and it exerts more pressure on individuals.

    I know older lads who have lost their box due to stuff on facebook, someone who is vulnerable can be easily influenced in doing harm to themselves particularly if they're unwell.

    The positive I suppose is that access to relevant services is easily available.

    Undoubtedly. There's no escape, even if it's not bullying or negative news, people are surrounded by other people displaying (often) false depictions of their lives which can lead to people unfavourably comparing themselves to their peers when it's not a true comparison.

    Glad it wasn't around when I was a teenager tbh

    This pursuit of perfection is extremely worrying. Social media has taken the old phrase "keeping up with the Joneses" to crazy levels.

    People not being well informed is what they want. That's how you got Boris and Brexit. That's how we got Trump.

    Terrible

    There was a spate of suicides among the young in bridgend several years ago

    Men under 45 are very vulnerable to suicide

    I was dressed in a blue hoodie

    Jeans

    White trainers, ccfc pin badge

    When I showed him that he said we are here to the business are you in ? I said I am just going to get some money out of the bank, see you later and then mingled in with the shoppers in boots

    Hard-core

    Yeah and to top it off the Jones’ they are aiming to keep up with are mainly faking it on social media, trying to make themselves look minted or having the best time ever, it’s by and large total BS. I’ve known idiots like it, driving around in a Porsche boxter they don’t own, in clothes they bought on the credit card they can’t pay off, anything to present an image of wealth. Unfortunately the young and impressionable fall for it.
