The percentage of people diagnosed with a mental illness has increased over the years.
‘While the proportion of people affected does not appear to have risen in the past few years, if you go back a little further there has certainly been a steady increase.Evidence from the NHS Digital study in England shows the rise has been driven by an increase in women with illness.’ *
Mental health problems can affect anyone, any day of the year, but 10th October is a great day to show your support for better mental health and start looking after your own wellbeing.
It’s very important to be aware of mental illness as it has effected so many people and some people you may not even be aware about.
We have all had our own personal struggles be it relationships (love and friendships), finance or even just self love.
