While a significant amount of work remains to be done before those suffering from mental health challenges can truly be said to be receiving appropriate care and support, there is clearly some ground for optimism. Perhaps the greatest cause for hope in the future is this – the next time you find yourself in a gathering of over 100 people, consider the fact that, as mentioned, 1:5 will suffer from some form of significant mental challenge in their lifetime. If you are one of the 20 who will suffer from mental illness, how would you like to be treated?
Isn’t it time to act – now?
