I believe Mental Health is the key to wellbeing. It deserves attention in all aspects of our society. Making people and organisations in education, health, work, leisure, housing, family, transport, can all help to make life more bearable for those who suffer from a mental health problem. The freedom to participate in everyday life is the right of all – to make that as easy and safe should be the business of all. Raising the profile of mental health can only help awareness and awareness helps to make change.
