Research and resources

“I think the most important thing most mental health professionals need to do is say hello to people – a very simple thing. When I was an in-patient the person who had most impact was the cleaner, she was the most beneficial person – she would just talk to the patients, say hello, pass time with you – whereas, sadly, that seemed beyond the professionals”

This initiative is in response to research, which shows that - despite positive changes in attitudes towards people with mental health problems in some areas of life - 1 in 3 people report stigma and discrimination when they use mental health services.
