The truth is that anyone can be affected by mental illness...
For far too long, mental illness has been a subject people have been afraid to discuss. It is high time that we address this by breaking down the myths and stigma surrounding mental health issues and start talking openly.

Too often we think of mental health problems as something that only happens to other people. The truth is that anyone can be affected by mental illness and the chances are that you already know someone who has been. That means we all have a reason to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination, which is why I am backing Time to Change Wales.
