#NoStigma

Life without stigma means we all get to live it.

Mental health means a state of wellbeing that helps us to cope with the normal stress of life, to work and contribute to our communities, and to develop as people.

Life without stigma means we all get to live it.

Good mental health supports how we:

  • think, feel and behave
  • interact with other people
  • look after ourselves and others
  • take part in and enjoy our lives.

At different times in our lives, we may need to get some help and support for our mental health.

This might be because of particularly stressful or unsettling times. Challenges many of us are facing at present - like family concerns, job loss, or health worries - can all have an impact, for example. Or, it might be because of worrying changes in how we are thinking, how we are feeling, or how we are acting.

Right now, looking after our own and others’ mental health has never been more important.

Let's not let stigma get in the way

Mental health stigma can arise because of a lack of awareness and understanding about mental health. This can lead to discrimination, which means someone being treated unequally or unfairly compared to others, because of a mental health difficulty.

Let's not let stigma get in the way

Stigma can impact how quickly we seek support when we need it, and can lead to unnecessary delays in getting help.

The sooner we get help and support when we need it, the better it is for our mental health.
