Some conversations are scary but ones about mental health shouldn’t be. Mental health affects us all and we need to reach out to each other in openness, honesty and a spirit of humanity to end discrimination and stigma around mental health and mental illness. Take 5 today and start the conversation.
If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health then please don’t be afraid to reach out and talk to someone. You are not alone and help is available. By opening up and starting the conversation we can move forward together and look to a mentally healthy future. Below are links to a range of fantastic organisations that can provide information, advice and services.
