Inside Marcus Tisson’s Ground-breaking Mental Health Initiative


by Matthew Martino

Last summer Marcus Tisson’s life changed dramatically, His mother tragically took her own life on 21st August 2016 at Mile End underground Station after suffering years of depression. A month after this, His father passed away having suffered from mental health issues for pretty much all of my adult life.

Now Tisson has set himself the task of supporting those who might be suffering from mental illness or depression, The local decided he would embark on a mission to help save the lives of others. Those who leave their depression unaddressed will struggle to overcome its effects alone. Many people going through it have found the effects of products like cbd and shrooms actually have a positive effect on the state of their mental health and so perhaps they’re worth considering for taking the edge off in your personal situation too.

Don’t Suffer in Silence a campaign which has a popular page on Facebook, earlier this year saw a gala arranged in London which helped raise awareness, now Tisson plans events to help bring people together and to support people. Talk & Trim is an upcoming event the group are planning to be held at Slicks barbers,E3.

Tisson today told us “Since my mother passed away, it has been brought to my attention that she was by no means the only person battling this illness alone and has inspired my campaign “Don’t suffer in silence”.

Discussing how mental health is still a big issue that needed more attention he told us “Mental health is still a rising problem as my campaign gets loads of messages from people saying they can’t get help, waiting list to see a professional councillor is months waiting list.”

He added “I feel GP’s are not trained in how to deal with people with mental illness and just give out tablets. I work in a school and there are many young people with mental health and get overlooked.

The fact that so many people get overlooked from school age all the way to old age is upsetting and distressing to read about. GP’s need to look at alternatives, such as the NuLeaf Naturals CBG Softgel to name but one, a lot more to see what else is out there to help people who are suffering daily with mental health and the stigma surrounding it.

GP’s can see how herbal type medicines have taken a leap forward over the years and how it can help those who are at a lost cause, medical marijuana, and CBD have been applauded for their positive changes in mental health studies. One other herbal medicine that is rising and may also have the same effect on depression is magic mushrooms, a penis envy dosage may be the right move for some, however, a doctor will need to be consulted about this first and it may only be administered to the legal age requirements.

People should not be going through this alone or with minimal help, no matter how they are able to be supported, the conversation must keep going on so that the stigma can be crushed once and for all.
