Stigma and Mental Illness – New D

This story is another one that I meant to pick up on earlier, but have been a little too busy to catch up on.

 

Time to Change conducted research into the stigma surrounding mental illness and found that there have been improvements in the way that mental illness is now perceived.

 

Some key findings include:

  • 95% of respondents recognise that stigma is a problem.
  • 3/4s of people say that they are aware of the facts surrounding mental illness.
