Gary To Appear In Campaign For Depression Awareness Week 2013

57Gary  takes part in a video campaign for Depression Awareness Week, initiated  by Aware, an organisation from Northern Ireland that helps people who suffer from depression. Aware on their campaign:

“As part of Depression Awareness Week 2013 we made a video highlighting the importance of talking to someone if they are depressed. This video features well known artist Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol; Jim Eastwood from the BBC’s Apprentice; Tim McGarry (Da from Give My Head Peace); Michelle Gildernew MP; Minister Edwin Po0ts MLA; Conall McDevitt MLA; Anna Lo MLA; Mike Nesbitt MLA and other people who agreed to participate. The participants were given the choice of two signs to hold. The first sign says, “I had depression, I talked about it and never looked back.” The second of the signs reads, “I know someone who had depression, they talked about it and never looked back.”
