"Around mental health in general, there is a lot of stigma attached, a lot of misconceptions and a lot of phrases that tend to get used towards people with mental illness."

Watch Katie talk about the three most unhelpful things you can say to someone with a mental health problem and the impact this has on them: 

Share your story

Too many people are made to feel ashamed. By sharing your story, you can help spread knowledge and perspective about mental illness that could change the way people think about it.


The stuff people say

I could relate to your video. I looked dazzling as always in the office- no one expected me to have to disappear for so long and assumed I was coping with the workload since I looked great! Even my family made all three comments above. There’s a long way to go.

Mental Health Education

Hi Katie, what an inspiring video, thank you for sharing it with us and educating others. After experiencing mental health problems myself for the last 6 years I've now turned my whole life around and focused on self-improvement and taking care of my mental health. I would like to share your video link in my Yoga Blog for World mental health day tomorrow and continue to educate others and raise awareness. I hope this is okay. Sending all my Love, Ruth xx
