Limerick Leader | Donal O’Regan
Former Limerick Minor & U21 Hurler Owen Webb O’Rourke speaks about his mental health difficulties and encourages other to seek help.
FROM THE outside Owen Webb O’Rourke has it all – intelligence, good looks, sporting talent, a loving family and girlfriend. But that’s the problem with looking from the outside – you can’t see the inside.
Owen has joined the It’s OK not to feel OK campaign by sharing his story. In a moving blog post the Kilmallock man bares his soul, with the goal of encouraging others to talk about their problems and seek help if needed.
The 24-year-old writes with complete honesty about twice being “at peace” with the decision to take his own life.
“Luckily I was saved from making the regret that I would never have to live with. I got a second and even a third chance from making the most selfish decision of my life,” said Owen.
