Apparently around 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem this year, yet the shame and silence can be as bad as the mental health problem itself. Being open to mental health doesn’t have to be awkward, it’s just about starting an honest conversation.
Let’s spread the love and support and not be afraid to say ‘how you really doing’. It may be difficult but that conversation could make a massive difference.
Also in posting this I’m hoping by just getting the words out there and talking about mental health that we all feel a little bit less weird about talking about it and take another little chip away at the stigma that is mental health.
