How much do we really know about mental health?
14th May 2014
It’s not always easy to talk about mental health, but the fact is, talking about it is a big step in spreading awareness and dispelling some of the myths and stigma that surrounds mental health.
In the lead up to Mental Health Awareness Week we ran a survey of multiple-choice questions from 6 – 9 May to ascertain the general public’s perceptions about mental health conditions. The results are displayed in the following infographic which we hope will help raise awareness and remove misconceptions.

Results are based on responses from 19,533 participants over a four day period.
