    The thing that struck me is ... how you wouldnt know they had a mental health issue of you passed them in the street.
    That is a very strange thing to say..... :/

    Why? Nobody has a badge to say they have a mental health condition and some people are quite adept at hiding whether they are coping or not.
    I just found it odd that it's only just "struck you" that you can't always tell if someone has a MH condition or not just by looking at them. It's like you didn't realize that before reading the article?

    That wasn't what I was after. Just commenting that it seemed strange that a, presumably, young, educated person in 2017 didn't already know that.
