It's time to give a sh*t about mental illness

One reason I began this blog was because I am passionate about raising mental health awareness. It's so common, and although we're getting better at talking about it, we're still not quite there yet. The more we talk about it, the more we begin to accept that it really isn't something to be ashamed of. And the more people who discuss their mental health experiences, the more tolerance we build up for society - we tend to be more accepting when we 'know' someone who has suffered mental health problems or if we have suffered ourselves, so it's important to keep talking.

MQ Transforming Mental Health through research have provided me with some information on mental health in young people, but actually it applies to us all really. It gives a basic overview of some key facts, which may challenge how you think.

I hope you can see how important talking mental health really is.
