No 2. Raising awareness after my husband took his life
by Clare Francis
With about 1 in every 4 people in the UK experiencing mental health problems in any year, it must be very rare to find someone who isn't supporting a loved one with mental health problems.
That's why we're not surprised that our top two blogs for 2015 are both from people with experience of caring for a person with mental health problems.
Tragically, Clare lost her husband Mark when he took his own life in 2011. In her blog she explains how important she feels being open about our mental health is for coping, and how she wonders if this would have made a difference to him.
Clare has been a great supporter of Mind over the past few years. Her and her team at Money Supermarket have raised over £130,000 through boat racing, marathons, bake sales and climbing Kilimanjaro, not to mention the awareness she has raised with this blog.
