The fact is, we all have mental health – there is no health without mental health!
But, do we all know enough about it to make a difference in our own lives and others? What is there a difference between mental health and mental illness? Is mental health really that important?
1 in 4 adults will suffer with their mental health at some point in their lives
1 in 8 children currently experience poor mental health
We lose over 200 children (10-14 yrs) every year to suicide
Over 3 million children live with parents who have a mental illness
and that is just the tip of the iceberg!
