 World Mental Health Day

Tuesday 10th October 2017 was World Mental Health Day.

1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems this year.

It’s easy to dismiss mental health problems as something that only affects others. But, with 1 in 4 people experiencing mental health problems every year, it can happen to any of us – a friend, member of the family, or work colleague.

You don’t have to be an expert to be supportive. It can be as simple as checking in with someone, asking them how they’re doing, listening and not judging, just being there and being yourself.

Team AG pledge that we will not judge others, as we are all fighting our own battles. We will look out for those around us, offering support, friendship and time.

We will continue to focus on wellbeing, addressing problems before they become severe, and supporting others when issues do emerge.

You can find out more about Time to Change and their In Your Corner campaign at time-to-change.org.uk. Time to Change is run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, and thousands of organisations like us are joining to help make change happen.
