    My younger son was diagnosed with Anxiety with Depresssion just before Christmas 2017. The Villanova household knew nothing of mental illness at that time and have had to learn and adapt fast. And we are all still learning. And we are always here to help.

    I'm not aware of it for myself Henry, since I consider that to be more a serious condition, but depression can be normal, triggered by all sorts of nearby influences, and affects many of us.

    How can we help?

    Mental health is one of those questions that a number people find hard to answer. Just what is 'Mental Health'? Is it something quantifyable that you can take a pill for? Nobody seems able to give a definitive answer. Where I work. We have mental health first aiders (I kid you not). The standing joke is: Just what is in a Mental Health First Aid kit? A couple of spliffs and a bong? The joke continues; Somebody is wigging out in X Department. Here mate. Have a couple of hits from this bong. You'll end up not giving a ****. It all makes you think.

    I do have to ponder the causes of mental health issues. Again. Nobody seems to have a definitive answer.

    Or of course, it could just be a sticky key on the keyboard.

    I wonder what it is, and what sort of answers are required?

    Come on H, send a PM to me if you want to avoid drugs!

    Seriously - my dear old 80-odd mum in law gets depression every few months, it just hits her suddenly and hard and she stays in bed.

    When I got to know I used to go there and if she looked otherwise healthy, I told her to stop pretending, stop being lazy and get up and make me a coffee. In the beginning when I wasn't sure how far to go, I left her alone and just gave her a hug and some sympathy and it took days and medication to get her out.

    After I knew she really does care about me I told her off more severely, told her to get up or I'd drag her out by her feet, and nonsense like that, and waited in the garden or the kitchen and call her every 10 minutes or so saying "come on mum, I'm waiting and I ain't making it for you."

    Then bugger me, she'd get up and make me that coffee within an hour, and sit with me chatting til I left. And the next day she'd be fine.

    Anything could set her off, something like reading or hearing about a child being murdered - that causes me to want revenge on the murderer as you know.

    The rest of the family wouldn't talk to her like that but called the doctor for home visits and bluddy drugs. In those days it was Valium!

    Luckily home visits are not easy to arrange these days, and it's got less frequent.

    Recently she had asthma and breathing problems and had to go to A&E and they kept her in hospital for 2 weeks, getting fluid on her heart and more, and she totally gave up on herself. I told her to "come on mum, get well, you have to sort yourself out and we're going home. Hurry up, this lot in here are useless!"

    In another week she'd recovered enough and we moved her to a nursing home to recover her strength enough to be able to get up and about by herself.

    So I hope you can see that these things are linked to feeling alone, depressed, and the downward slope if the victim thinks only drugs can help.

    So please let us or one of us know, what can we do to help? Burn or steal one of your cars for example? Bump someone off, take them for a ride, make them an offer they can't refuse, adopt your illegitimate child, get "her" to marry you?
