Sad news, I really wish more could be done by this and past Governments to support people...
Although not said, it appears to be suicide as there is no real investigation..
We really need more help for people in depression....

At about 1-15pm on Saturday I drove over the Itchen bridge and there was a single shoe on the pavement about half way over. Connection? I now wish I had called the police! Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

You can never stop people getting fed up losing perspective and then killing themselves. Many don't even seek help

Many people are seeking help but with such severe cuts to local mental health services the help just isn't available anymore.

There would be no point would there? This was Saturday and now a body has been found. I don't want to sound harsh but if it did belong to the body the deed was done and, exactly when? Maybe it came off of a cyclist, out of a rucksack, thrown from a car I, don't know.
