Mental health and stigma

One in four of us will experience a mental health problem every year - that means that, right now, one of your friends, colleagues or loved ones is going through it.

But too many people with mental health problems are made to feel worthless or isolated. The way you act towards someone with a mental illness can change their life: by opening up to mental health you can make a real difference. 

You can be the difference to someone with a mental illness.

Being open to mental health can break down any stigma surrounding it.
