Mental Health

The leading cause of death for males between 25 and 34 years of age is suicide. It has become such an important cause of death in the developed world that preventing it is the top priority in a number of age groups.

If you want to make sure you make it to 200, first make sure you make it to 40. To make sure you make it to 40, regularly take some time to think about your life and ask yourself whether you are happy, or at least content, doing the things you do. When that is not the case, try to figure out what you would need to do to change that.

When that seems hard, when you don’t really understand your worries or when you understand them but can’t seem to do anything about them, go and talk to someone who has experience addressing these kinds of issues. Talking to a psychologist, social worker or other kind of mental health professional about your worries and the changes you would like to make is a perfectly normal thing to do.

We believe life is worth living for much longer than is currently possible, even though we are also only ordinary humans that experience unhappiness. Being able to handle the whole range of emotions and experiences is just another skill to learn: the longer you live, the larger the chance you will experience both higher ups and deeper downs. Who better to teach you those skills than those that spend their lives doing just that?
