Positive take on mental health

Sir -- I am writing in relation to your article 'Lifting veil of secrecy on suicide and talking about mental health', by Hilary A White (Sunday Independent, January 23).

It provided a very positive and informative discussion of the stigma that surrounds mental ill health.

By challenging our common approach to mental illness, your article will go a long way toward normalising the idea that anyone can experience mental ill health.

It will encourage people to support others in distress and encourage those experiencing difficulties to seek help.

I would like to congratulate you on publishing this article.
