Mental health stigma 

1 in 4 of us will suffer from Mental Health problems! That means in a family of 4, 1 of them will have symptoms of Mental Health at some point in their lives! Sadly because we don’t see mental health as the same as physical health, the way in which we support people in their recovery is completely different… If someone has a physical health problem then flowers and cards are bought, telephone calls  supportive messages and visits are made, yet when someone suffers from Mental Health problems, they are ignored like they have the plague! 

Did you know that within mental health  their recovery is helped by just a kind word, a supportive ear and sometimes even a cup of tea! 

Let’s start today by reducing the stigma of mental health! If you know someone suffering with a mental health problem, send them a supportive message. You never know, you may just have saved their life!
