Say* what you need to say -

Hannah wrote - "Depression, like abuse, needs to be talked about more, weaknesses also need to be talked about more. I should share my weaknesses with people if they want me to, and not hold back." It is with this in mind that we chose to speak openly about what has happened - in the hope that it might help to bring down the barriers that many people face in seeking and offering help.

We would really like to hear from you, particularly if you have some happy memories of Hannah, or some tips for living well
