We’re only halfway through 2018 and it’s already proven to be a hard year for mental health. From the tragic deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain to, errr, apocalyptic-sounding headlines plastered all over the news, it feels like a lot of us are struggling to keep going these days.
And while it’s important that anyone in need reach out for help (1-800-273-8255), a young woman in England has been using unconventional ways to help people who feel like they've lost all hope.
Paige Hunter is an 18-year-old Brit receiving astounding praise for her efforts in saving as many as six lives through the heartfelt notes she’s been leaving on Wearmouth Bridge in Sunderland, England.
The local Northumbria police has commended Paige for tying more than 40 notes on the bridge’s railing, calling it an “innovative” effort to reach those “in a dark place.”
