According to Mind, one in four people will experience a mental health issue of some sort each year in England.
Many people still feel like they can’t talk openly to others when they may be having a bad day because of the stigma attached. But every time we are open and talk about how we’re feeling, the easier it becomes.
Not only can talking about your feelings relieve the pressure, it can lead to a different perspective and approach to your problems. It can also help build relationships with the person you are talking to, whether that’s a family member, a friend, or colleague.
Mental Health First Aider’s are becoming more commonplace too. Ask your employer if you have someone in your organisation who is trained to listen and offer advice.
