Let’s support each other’s mental wellbeing.
1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem each year, and our attitude can affect their life.
- By speaking openly about mental health we can challenge stigma;
- By listening deeply to other’s experiences we can create a supportive environment;
- By changing our attitudes we can look after our own and each other’s mental wellbeing.
As Time to Change point out: sometimes it’s as simple as asking a friend ‘how are you?’ and really listening to the answer.
