Mental Health Everyone Has It!
Who Has a Mental Illness? Here are 5 young people. Can you tell who is suffering from a mental illness? No, you can’t! Mental Illnesses are usually invisible, but have huge effects on people’s lives.
What Do You think ‘Mental Health’ Is?
What is Mental Health? • A person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well being. • ¼ of the population experience some kind of mental health problem. • Anxiety and depression are the most common issues with around 1 in 10 people affected at any one time. • Mental health issues can be severe and long-lasting and have a big impact on people’s ability to get on with life.
Society’s View of Mental Health • There is a stigma attached to mental health problems. • Some people feel uncomfortable about these issues and don’t want to talk about them much. • Many people don’t even feel comfortable talking about their own feelings. • It’s healthy to know and say how you’re feeling.

Why is there a stigma? • Society in general has stereotyped views about mental illness and how it affects people. • Many people believe people with mental health issues are violent and dangerous. • Lack of understanding and misbelief add to stigma. • In fact they are more at risk of being attacked or harming themselves than harming other people. • Stigma and discrimination worsen mental health problems! • The best way to help is to talk!
