Playing your part in building a mental health friendly environment

By taking part in open converstaions about mental health and destigmatising the subject you can show others that it’s okay to be struggling with mental health.

The more we discuss mental health the more it is accepted. It helps others to recognise symptoms and increases our collective understanding of mental health and how it can impact each of us differently.

We look at what you can do to increase awareness and how you can play your part in building a mental health friendly environment.
