It is hard sometimes with mental illness to know. One minute you are flying and the next you are hurtling downwards, able to make out the individual windows in the buildings and the colours of jackets and the patterns of chewing gum on the streets. There can be triggers and there can be signs, and sometimes the triggers come first and sometimes the signs, and in some instances the descent or ascent can be difficult to comprehend. As we know, even the richest of people, the most successful, the most popular can become depressed and experience mental illness (and poor mental health, which is not the same, although they intertwine. We all experience bouts of poor mental health). More and more people are aware that these illnesses do not discriminate. People can be predisposed, genetically, to mental illness or have a vulnerability to mental ill health, but environment also factors. Of course the outside can affect the inside.

Takeaway driver Choudhry Hussain, 41, claimed he needed to attend a family funeral but instead flew to Pakistan halfway through his sex abuse trial in 2016. He had permission to go to Birmingham but hopped on a plane to Amsterdam and then on to Islamabad to dodge his 19-year sentence - and had been living the high life ever since. But local cops seized the paedo - who was living in a penthouse - in Singla City, Punjab, on Saturday (16/1) following a joint operation by the Federal Investigation Agency, the Punjab Police and the National Crime Agency (NCA).

Barnardo’s has warned that the endless alerts and pop-up from social media apps are dragging young people “into an uncontrolled spiral of internet use”. The charity also criticised features such as autoplay videos for creating unhealthy onlines habits and said it wanted companies to be forced to switch them off for children by law. Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan said: “Addictive features on social media, like notifications, alerts and videos that play automatically, should be switched off by default on all devices, apps and games used by children. “Auto-play, and games that don’t allow users to stop or pause, are designed to drive excessive use. And there is growing evidence that large amounts of time spent on social media can pose a threat to children’s mental health.” “Barnardo’s is calling for a change in … [Read more...] about Social media push notifications should be switched off as default for children, MPs told
