It’s Time to Talk

February 4, 2016 1:08 PM

Today is "Time to Talk" day when everyone is encouraged to have a conversation about mental health.

Despite huge strides forward in how we view mental health problems then there is still far too much stigma attached to the subject. Yet suffering from a mental health problem is no more shameful than a physical health issue.

The more we talk about it openly then the easier it is for others to admit their problems and seek help.

There is no shame in being ill, the shame is if we make people feel they have to hide away.
