Professor Green Opens Up About Dad's Suicide

Rapper Professor Green has told Sky News how coping with his father's suicide made him campaign for better mental health awareness.
The Read All About It singer, whose real name is Stephen Manderson, said he wants children to be taught about mental illness at school.
The 31-year-old's father took his own life when the singer was 24 and he has written lyrics about how it affected him.
"I think kids should be introduced to it from an early age so it's not something they're embarrassed to talk about," he said.
"The first thing people think about when you say 'mental health' is that first word, 'mental, mental, crazy'. That stigma still exists everywhere."
He said he has realised the "importance of using my voice for something other than self-benefit".

Green, who is married to Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, has written a biography, called Lucky, about his rise to fame after nearly losing his life when he was stabbed in the neck with a glass bottle.
"Some might call me lucky for having been stabbed. I look at it as being extremely lucky for still being here.
"The bottle went right past my carotid, it actually stopped at my jawbone.
"It was only that it was a bottle so there was two sides to it that it actually stopped."
