As part of Mental Health Awareness week, I thought I would let you know some of the facts regarding just how many people can be effected by a Mental Health issue at any one time.
It is important to remember that although a person may have one of these issues, it does not make them any different, or someone to be afraid of, but rather to be understood and treated just like anyone else. As someone who has suffered with anxiety, that is definitely something that I would want from just about anybody I come into contact with, as well as what I want for others also.
However, there still seems to be such a bad stigma revolving around this, but I really don’t know why! I hope in the next few years we can tackle these issues head on, and finally begin to help those who need it, rather than judging them before properly knowing them.
Anyway, without further ado, here is the Infographic I made for this occasion:
Before doing this, I really had no idea that some of these numbers would be as high as they are, but it really goes to show that when I say how alone I feel, that I am not really, because there are others like me, who are in the same shoes.
Be a friend and be there for someone who needs it. You have no idea how much of a difference it truly makes.
