I have been reading about Mental As Ambassador Virginia Triolli and so pleased that Mental Health is being recognised. She will be raising awareness between 4- 11 October. It is such an important cause and raising awareness is crucial. Many people are impacted by mental health problems and the stigma needs to be blown out of the water. The conversation needs to be had at home, in the workplace and with family and friends. I will be actively involved and hope everyone takes a look at the Mental As website as it is a good site and well worth looking at for information and awareness.
