Reasons To Stay Alive

"I want life. I want to feel it and live it. I want, for as much of the time as possible in this blink-of-an-eye existence we have, to feel all that can be felt." Matt Haig
It may be hard to talk about anxiety and depression but it happens to one in five people worldwide. There are though many ways of seeing it differently. And we’d like to get YOU involved in just one of these.

Thinking of your own Reasons to Stay Alive can be a great celebration of positive mental health. So please help us gather a snapshot of some of the things that keep people excited about life.

It might be a photo of a sunrise, your favourite building, someone who matters to you. It could be a video of an incredible gig, an amazing goal, a child giggling, something new or something you took years ago. All we ask is that you share things that never fail to make you smile. We will be selecting the best shots to be part of a video about positive mental health so send us your best ones! If you’re stuck for inspiration, take a look at our video at the top of the page.
