The number of people who are affected by mental health is rising. In 1990, 416 million people suffered from depression or anxiety worldwide – these numbers rose to 615 million in 2013 (World Health Organisation, 2016).
Current figures state that each year in Britain an estimated one in four adults will experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem, though only 230 of every 300 who need help will actually visit their GP.
Mental illness is extremely common and exists in different forms, each of which can have an adverse effect on your well-being.
It’s easy to think there’s no right place or time to talk about mental health. But the more we talk about it, the better life is for all of us.
