Mental Health Stigma

Part of our strategy as a mental health charity is to help break down the stigma surrounding mental ill health. The reason for this is that stigma can be so harmful to people already trying to manage a challenging condition. Stigma can even be more detrimental to a person's well being than the condition itself. It can also prevent people from seeking the treatment they need to recover because they are wary of the societal issues they might face from friends, family, and work colleagues. 

Mental ill health needs wise, compassionate responses, not fearful stigma. We regularly share posts like the images below on Facebook & Twitter. Please join us!
