Why mental health needs to be a part of our language

After being inspired by the 300 Voices Pilot project 'Other', I went away and wrote a spoken word around the issues of mental health. It was brought to my attention by Other that mental health issues are to often ignored or pre-conceived. As well as there being a massive stigma attached to the issue, many sufferers experience discrimination because of there mental health problem.

As a society, we need to step back and just 'Spare a minute not to judge'.
