Like physical health, we all have mental health.

Both can change throughout our lives, and like our bodies, our minds can become unwell. The effects are as real as a broken arm, even though there isn’t a sling or plaster cast to show for it. Mental health problems are more common that you might think.

One in four adults and one in ten children and young people are affected by mental health problems in any year. There are many kinds of mental health problems, some of which are low mood, depression, anxiety and stress.

Having a mental health problem can be hard, but sometimes isolation and stigma can make it even worse. Talking about mental health doesn’t need to be difficult and can make a big difference. People often worry about offending or upsetting others if they discuss their mental health, but from evidence we know that people with mental health problems would rather talk to someone they know.

We deliver a range of training and campaigns, which amongst others, is aimed at promoting knowledge and awareness of mental health, offering ways to improve mental wellbeing, and reducing stigma by encouraging discussions around mental health.
