    Hi Guys,

    I don't now if any of you watched the Oscars but the winner for Best Adapted Screenplay, Graham Moore, gave quite a moving speech. Copy pasting from huffington.

    "I tried to commit suicide at 16 and now I'm standing here," he said. "I would lie for this moment to be for that kid who feels like she doesn't fit in anywhere. You do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it's your turn and you are standing on this stage please pass the same message along."

    That is really uplifting. I am glad that more and more celebrities are making mental illness hit the headlines and be talked about. People will listen to them and hopefully reduce the stigma.
