    Stephen Fry, what can schools do to better educate youngsters about mental health and the seriousness of the impact that bullying has on individuals suffering from a mental illness?

    I would imagine so. Nothing on any of his social media about this and TSR aren't blasting this forum across the website/haven't been advertising on the scale you would expect for a big name like this. But oh well.

    i did think this :beard: arent celebrity users usually verified in some way, university accounts usually have 'official rep' next to their name

    I personally think that prioritising more serious mental health issues can help with this issue. But that should also be compromised with the amount of hours the patient is waiting, since now days the four hour waiting threshold is being exceeded.

    - Stephen Fry
    four hours? the wait is more like months to see a psychiatrist

    When you were diagnosed with bipolar did you ever think that was basically the end? You'd never amount to anything and should just give up? I feel that way a lot, like people around me no longer expect me to do well and be successful because of my mental health diagnosis. How do you not give up?

    First of all Stephen, welcome to TSR and am a massive fan of your work in Blackadder (Duke of Wellington / General Melchett FTW) + Jeeves and Wooster (I may be in my 20s but appreciate 80s humour).

    I have no idea if there is a question limit for this thing (I am aware this sentence can be perceived as a question but I am using it as a semi-rhetorical question) but Ill ask my 2 questions anyway:

    As a fellow techie, do you feel that Apple is deliberately restricting features on their products in order to drive up aftermarket accesory sales?

    and how do you see technology progressing in the next 5 years and its impact on daily lives?

    Never let this put you down. Yes, it is hard to live with bipolar, and I actually had a less serious one known as cyclothymia. As long as you follow your passion, you are able to achieve anything. I never thought my disorder would be the end of me. If you believe in your self, you can be successful. Remember to not a let a disorder stop you from succeeding.

    A useful number to call is Samaritans:116 123. Also regular exercise can help as well so make sure your mind is well rested.

    Good luck and I do hope you will achieve what you want.

    - Stephen Fry
    Well.....I wanted to be a police officer here in the USA but my schizophrenia diagnosis kind of stops me achieving that. but thank you for your answer, I'm glad you never thought cyclothymia was the end of you.
