It's World Mental Health Day today. A day to spead the word, spread the knowledge, and get help.
One in four adults and one in ten children are likely to have a mental health problem in any given year. This can have a profound impact on the lives of tens of millions of people in the UK, and can affect their ability to sustain relationships, work, or just get through the day.
It can start when we are kids, it can appear when we are adults, it can raise its head when we go through significant changes: adolecence, parenthood, divorce, bereavement, redundancy. Mental health escapes no one, we all have a mind, a mind we need to take care of like.
Unfortunately there is still a damaging attitude to mental health problems in the UK, where those in need are often stigmatized, which only leads to making one feel more detached and alone. But the key to prevention and getting better is to talk and share and explore.
The Journey Room is here to provide you that room to do just that.
And we feel passionate about helping you and joining the battled to break down the discrimination.
