All of us know someone or have some mental health issues on some level. A failing capitalist society makes us very unhealthy indeed. We are in a time of 'hyper attentiveness', always being connected to a screen based world. It is also a time of great efficiency with our technology, a kind of Utopia.

Good to see #smc_mcr is heading back

Good to see Social media Cafe Manchester is returning or is it #smc_mcr or is it Common Ground.
