According to the Mental Health Foundation, "One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year." They go on to say that mental health problems in the UK account for 28% of the 'burden of disease' compared to 16% each for cancer and heart disease. So between now and Mental Health Awareness Week, 8-14 May, we will be drawing attention to aspects of mental health as our small contribution to raising its profile. Like cancer before it, mental health needs to lose its taboo status.
