In any one year 1 in 4 individuals will experience a mental health problem or illness and, at any one time, 1 in 6 of the workforce will face these challenges. With mental health considered by many as a taboo subject, discrimination prevents people from talking about their problems and seeking the help they need. Tragically, suicide is the biggest killer for men under 50 in Wales. It’s time to take action, it’s Time To Change!
You can help us create a society where mental health problems are not hidden in shame or secrecy. Join our team by signing your own pledge to tackle mental health stigma.
