Mental health is such a wide-ranging topic, but it’s one that impacts every aspect and stage of our lives. It influences everything we do, from the way we behave and make choices on a daily basis, to how we react towards others and cope with stress. If we don’t have a healthy state of mind, it can be difficult to live life to the full.
That means many individuals and their families will continue to be affected by issues related to this – unless something is done.
Research also indicates that in the UK, approximately 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year. With these numbers, the chances are high that someone you already know has a mental health problem – and they may be struggling to get help.
Changing the way we think about mental health and understanding more about it are the first big steps to making a difference. There also lots of excellent charities and initiatives supporting this issue.
Do you want to be involved? Well, you can be. We Make Change is creating a new platform that will connect people with charities working on big issues like this. Users will be able to give time, money or things; positive action in just three clicks! We’re crowdfunding now to make this a reality.
