Mental health affects far more people than anyone realises. It is a hidden disease that doesn’t discriminate as it can affect anyone, any sex, any race, any religion, rich or poor. It is a misunderstood disease that can take many forms and can strike at any time. Help us try to bring it out into the open and get people talking about it. Together we can break the stigma and make a difference.
