Commenting on the Katie Hopkins piece published by the Mail Online, Sue Baker OBE, Director of Time to Change, said: 

“We want everyone to reach a place where they feel that they can open up about their mental health without fear of judgement, and to get the support of their family and friends. It’s fantastic to see more and more people feeling comfortable sharing their experiences – including the royals, celebrities, sports stars and business leaders but also thousands and thousands of everyday people like us. We know that this ‘openness’ helps to change attitudes and encourages more people to seek help, so we want to thank those people all over England and the world who are showing that mental health problems can affect anyone and that it is not something to be ashamed of.”
