I know the fella who recently wrote a book called "Fun Unplugged" which is aimed getting kids off digital devices. It seems like a logical step. The internet is still very new in relative terms and social media is especially recent so it's hard to predict the impact it is having on peoples attention spans, the feeling of being constantly connected, and even dopamine levels through seeking likes on Instagram or whatever. I don't have children so it's easy for me to say but handing kids devices to keep them entertained or distracted from toddler age upwards seems a bit reckless. I know parents need an occasional break but it's too easy to throw an iPad in front of a child and it starts a negative pattern.

Always struggled mentally due to various factors as I have spoke about on here before, had a major breakdown myself over the Christmas period, seriously contemplated taking my own life, I had a plan to go through with it one night, I sat and looked at photos of my daughter and couldn't do it. As it would destroy her, Spoke to my counsellor about it who had me taken to a care institution up here, im not long out but still none the better. In fact in that place would almost make you feel worse. Fill you full of tablets and you don't know whats going on. I try to be positive but its a complex thing the way the mind works. Sometimes I accept I have this and other days Im to exhausted to live with it, Without my daughter I know id be long gone.  

I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. The fact that you're posting about how you're feeling seems positive. Also well done on taking it to the counselor and speaking about it. You're taking steps to get sorted which is very brave and so many people don't do that. It's a journey you're on, so don't rush it and keep up the counselling. 

One of my friends lost his older brother to suicide about 14 years ago. Since then, he set up this online community called Turn2me to help other people who might be struggling a bit with mental health. They run an excellent service so please do check in here.

Technology generally has revolutionised bullying. The term cyber-bullying has to be a recent addition to our lexicon, and it’s not just social media. Cheap and ubiquitous mobile technology meant that while the bully was often left behind in the workplace or in the schoolyard, it now followed the bullied party home as they were now in reach.

Social media was like a match to this as bullying became totally unregulated and off campus, and as a result often beyond jurisdiction. Concepts like revenge porn, doxing etc are all new forms of bullying, and extend on the more traditional verbal, physical bullying and threats.

Social Media and mental health concerns are undoubtedly linked.

They should have 'manned up'...

in fairness PM i think the days of "catch a grip"and "man up "and "snap out of it " are gone. 
10 years ago a mental health issue could lead to ridicule for sure but i think people are really educated now about this...

I was being flippant, of course, but I certainly disagree with your last line that people are educated about it. I would say it is the complete opposite. There is an acceptance alright, but very little sympathy and close to no empathy at all. Very few people actually want to deal with mental health, they just pay lip service. Until that changes, and that comes from society and individuals within it, we are going nowhere.
you were probably told to leave an Irish centre one night but kept mouthing off and some big church going Gaa player f**ked you out the door hence your hatred for the Catholic Church and Gaa aswell!

Social Media 100%, If you make a tit out of yourself on a night out, like we all do at some stages in our lives, the whole town could be getting videos and pics of it, there are no secrets anymore. The thoughts of something like this and getting publicly humiliated can be the worst thing imaginable to some people, it affects different people differently. Another thing is if a young lad gets in a fight with friends, much easier for them to isolate and exclude him from group chats/plans etc. Have a bit of experience of the affect it can cause a teenager in my own house. It's a different world even from when I was that age about 6 years ago!

I missed Dev's post and Cafu actually went into a little bit of detail. I felt your post was merely pointing out the obvious, which I feel is a huge part of the problem. 

By the way, just to address your last point: no f**king sh*t Sherlock!

it's not fake, 100% genuine. Full story lost my job in 2009. Anxiety hit with a bang in 2010. I went on 10mg lexapro. I have made several attempts to come off them but in 2018 I am still on 10mg lexapro. I'm much better, building a house, exercise a lot but at the back of my mind is that nagging thought that I'm still on medication. Any woman I meet I always have the thought what would she think if she knew I was on medication.  Someone describes me once as the cockiest shy person they knew. It's all a front, some days I barely have the nerve to go into the canteen at work. Other days it's a breeze. Always seems to be 2 steps forward and 1 step back. I'm living in my head a lot. Over think everything. I take everything to heart, cant get promoted at work and im trying to leave. Hopefully one day I'll get on top of this.
