Here’s what rugby stars have been saying on #MentalHealthAwarenessDay
Rugby players, referees and clubs around the world are sharing stories and support for mental health awareness.
Please dont be afraid to speak to someone if your struggling no matter what the reason is. You’re family & friends will want you in their lives not just a memory of you. Its Ok not to be Ok. Stay strong & ask for help its a sign of great strength to do so. #WorldMentalHealthDay

Today, on #WorldMentalHealthDay, @Movember is highlighting the importance of being A Man of More Words. This means talking when things get tough, reaching out to a friend if they’re struggling, and taking the time to stop and listen

A subject very close to my heart. Far too many people suffer in silence, afraid to speak out for whatever reasons. Proud to to see so many @GlasgowWarriors boys helping to #EndTheStigma #NoHealthWithoutMentalHealth #WorldMentalDay pic.twitter.com/YnWSJcf9Q9

If you’re struggling, talk to someone.
If you think someone is struggling, talk to them.
Men, cut the macho crap – don’t suffer in silence.
Everyone, have a little empathy. #MentalHealthDay2018
