"Until Mental Health is seen in the same light as physical health; without carrying stigma then we must continually challenge society and those with influence to ensure that any inequality is addressed "

Mental Health Facts
Mental ill health affects us all
One in five of us has a mental health condition at any one time.
Around half of people with lifetime mental health problems experience the first symptoms before the age of 14.
Only a quarter of people with a mental health condition receive any treatment for it.
Nine out of ten people in prison have at least one mental health problem. Almost a quarter of prisoners have a mental illness that requires specialist treatment.
Mental ill health has an economic and social cost of £105bn a year.
Mental illness accounts for 28% of the total burden of disease but only 13% of NHS spending.
Untreated mental ill health adds around £10 billion a year to the cost of physical health care for people with long-term conditions.
People with severe and enduring mental health conditions die on average 20 years earlier than those without.
So take a proactive approach and promote mental health across your area
