Peter Gabriel has joined The Times’ Time To Mind mental health campaign in the UK by speaking about his own battles with depression.

“One in four of us will suffer from a mental health problem this year,” he said. "Many years ago, I became depressed after my divorce and I know how debilitating it can be, but I also learnt how much difference good treatment can make.

“Ignoring the mental health of our kids is certain to create a destructive time bomb that will not only handicap them but also damage their ability to parent well. The emotional pressures and stresses that are now normal for our young people seem to be producing an extraordinary number of mental health problems, leaving teenagers more isolated and alienated than ever.”

Gabriel joins celebrity support for the campaign from Paloma Faith and Neil Gaiman.
