“I’ve seen people recover but what hinders that recovery is attitudes towards mental health.”

“I’ve worked in the field of mental health for about 15 years. My experience is that absolutely people can and do recover. I’ve seen people recover but what hinders that recovery is attitudes towards mental health. I hope that stigma continues to get broken down. I think it’s so important that people are able to talk about it; they don’t have to keep that bottled up. It can often progress and become worse if that happens because they are not getting that early support.”|
