THE death of Love Island contestant Mike Thalassitis proves mental health can affect everyone.

That was the message from Barrow mental health campaigner Dan Webber after Mr Thalassitis was found dead in a park in London.

His death came as The Mail launched its 'Time to Talk' campaign urging young men to speak out if they are struggling.

Mr Webber said: "Unfortunately, this proves that mental health is a national issue not just a local one.

"You may appear to have everything in the public eye but no matter who you are, you still need to understand that you are loved and can speak out.

"Local bereavement support teams, like those at The Living Well Centre in Duke Street, can help and support not just at the time of a loss but the aftermath when you need it most."

Former Love Island contestant Montana Brown said Mr Thalassitis, who died on Friday aged 26, had been in a “dark place” in recent months.

She wrote on Instagram: “Now I know you were in a dark place a few months back and I thought you were past it and that you were on the up.

"I got you to buy The Magic, you wrote down your gratitudes, you had the pictures of your family in your car to remind you to be grateful for them. I just don’t know how I didn’t notice... I am absolutely heartbroken that I couldn’t help you.”

The Metropolitan Police said a man was found hanged in a park in Edmonton.

A spokesperson said: “Police were called to a park near Latymer Way, N9 at 0928hrs on Saturday, 16 March to reports of a man found hanged.

“Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found a man, aged in his 20s, deceased.

“At this early stage, the death is not being treated as suspicious.

“Police are in the process of informing the man’s next of kin. A file will be prepared for the coroner.”

The Mail's campaign aims to highlight the support and advice that is widely available for anyone in crisis.

It comes after five young men have reportedly taken their lives in Furness since Boxing Day.
