    “amid reports of depression and suicide”
    What reports are these? Suicide is terrible but the rate has been falling in Ireland for years but you’d think the opposite is the case.
    This obsession and relentless focus on ‘mental health’ is actually quite cynical.
    It’s an industry now, just like it has been in the U.S for years.

    Never suffered from depression in my life. I’m generally a happy chap.

    But I have to say the past few months has been very trying.

    I’ve watched an industry that I’ve spent two decades establishing myself in disappear with no real chance of returning.

    So yeah my mental health has deffo been affected…
