The fash­ion world is mourn­ing the loss of de­signer Kate Spade, 55, who took her own life last week, af­ter strug­gling for years with anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion. Her hus­band Andy said she ‘had demons she was bat­tling’, while her sis­ter, Reta, said she kept her strug­gles a secret to pro­tect the image of her happy-go-lucky brand: ‘She was def­i­nitely wor­ried what peo­ple would say if they found out.’ If we can take any­thing from this, it should be a re­minder for us all to check in on fam­ily and friends, how­ever strong, suc­cess­ful or glam­orous they seem. Men­tal ill­ness doesn’t dis­crim­i­nate, but we can fight it to­gether if we let each other in.
