ROMAN Kemp’s new documentary had fans in tears when he found out about his secret fight against depression

Viewers flooded social media in support of the 28-year-old radio host who revealed his mental crisis after his best friend’s suicide

Friends and fans have praised Roman for his “courageous and honest” show, as they were “moved to tears” by his message

The host of the Capital Breakfast first shared how he lost his close friend Joe Lyons “without warning” last August

TV personality Roman worked with the 31-year-old for seven years and “had no idea he was struggling with his mental health”

In the BBC Three documentary Our Silent Emergency, he was seen crying as he shared his reaction and read up on his own battle with depression

Roman announced that he has been talking about sertraline, a type of antidepressant

, since he was a teenager

“I’ve been thinking about these things since I was 15 Year in my own head, “he tells the documentary

“When I’m in the place where I haven’t taken my medication, there is a part of me that just [thinks] that there is no way out

“It’s like five doors are in front of you and all the cement is behind you. You feel trapped. You have no prospect of a way out and it’s a terrible place”

Heartbroken fans took to Twitter to show their support, as did celebs like Niall Horan, singer Tom Grennan, and TV stars Dick & Dom

“It was eye-opening and beautiful at the same time,” wrote former One Direction member Niall, “We all have to take care of each other”

“What a really emotional, thought-provoking and well-articulated documentary,” added Dick & Dom, “You will have helped a lot”

Little Bit Of Love singer Tom called the documentary a “must see” as viewers began to share their own experiences

It does not discriminate and affect the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and the unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and soccer players

It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car accidents

However, there is seldom talk of a taboo that threatens to continue its fatal rampage unless we all stop now and take note of it

The goal is so that we can all do our part in saving lives by sharing practical advice, raising awareness, and removing the barriers people face when talking about their sanity

Let us all swear to ask for help when we need it and to listen to others. You are not alone

If you or someone you know needs help managing mental health problems, the following organizations can help:

“I cried for three hours after watching Roman’s documentary and found I was not feeling well, so I texted my best friend to speak,” one man wrote

“This documentary could save lives,” added another, “I feel so emotional after watching it. It’s so powerful”

“I was moved to tears,” said a third “eye-opening watch that is so important to all of us Thank you, Roman”

Another concluded, “This breaks my heart Thank you for showing antidepressants on TV and removing the taboo, novel”

Roman previously talked about how he viewed suicide at its lowest point in his ongoing battle with depression

In the documentary, Roman discusses how his mother Wham! The 58-year-old singer Shirlie Holliman came to his aid before attempting

And on the show you can hear him confess to her in an emotional moment: “That day I thought about going to the station and jumping in front of a train. I’m sorry I never told you that have ”

And he says that his suicidal thoughts are partly driven by the fear that he will only succeed because his father is the Spandau ballet musician Martin Kemp (59)

“I remember saying to myself,” What’s the point? Why do i keep going? ‘”Continued Roman

The 2019 finalist, I’m a Star, closed the documentary with easy ways to help friends who may be hiding mental health issues

He urges, “Call, talk to your friends, see if they’re okay – and ask twice if they’re okay”
