1 in 4 adults in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.
Mental health covers a broad range of problems and is a lot more common than we are led to believe. Whilst the subject is broad, 1 in 6 adults in England experience common problems, such as anxiety and depression, in any given week.
There are many services and organisations that can offer a varied range of professional support and we will share some on our profile throughout the week.
We can also continue to help by having open and honest conversations with each other about how we are feeling and what we’re experiencing. The more we speak up and share our experiences, the more we reduce the stigma around these common problems and normalise them.
