Mental Health Awareness Week, May 13th to 19th. We need to keep talking to address the stigma around mental health issues.

Mental Health Awareness Week is a campaign to raise awareness around mental health problems affecting millions of people in the UK. The theme this year is around body image; according to a survey carried out by the Mental Health Foundation, 1 in 8 adults felt suicidal because they were unhappy with how they looked.

We need to keep talking about the problems people face and the still present stigma around mental health issues and how people should be able to access support without feeling as if they are not resilient enough or have failed in some way.
