It was World Mental Health Day on Friday, which revealed lots of shocking statistics. According to the Mental Health Foundation, Mind, and the Time to Change campaign, one in four of us are affected by a mental health condition.

Hoping to encourage others to share their stories, Ben Curtis, an English student at the University of Lincoln, has spoken to The Linc about his trials and tribulations with depression.

He tells us about his opinions surrounding the subject and his experience of the issue along with some helpful tips and suggestions.
