We are dedicated to tackling the stigma around mental health and giving a voice to those who suffer or who care for those who suffer.
1 in 4 people will suffer from a mental health condition in any given year and yet there is a lack of willingness to talk about it. Sharing our experiences, thoughts, opinions etc on mental health can be both cathartic and liberating, however it is also very daunting. We aim to make this easier by providing a platform where people can talk about their mental health free from judgement, free from stigma.
By building such a community approach we aim to normalise the conversation around mental health, provide support and a release for those who suffer and increase understanding.
Stigma is often not the result of malicious thinking but of a lack of knowledge, by increasing the general level of knowledge and by talking to those with an open mind we can reduce the amount of stigma people face from others.
We are a small team, made up purely of volunteers working in our spare time. We are always open to new people joining the team to help spread the word further, help with logistical back end tasks, and generating new ideas and approaches.
