About us
1 in 4 people in the UK experience a problem with their mental health each year
An estimated 2 million more people will be living with a mental illness by 2030
 

Mental health issues are common. Yet many of us don’t feel comfortable enough to talk about our own.

 

Talking Mental Health was founded on the belief that talking about mental health issues can help manage them and alleviate the stigmas that surround them.

We believe that the more we share our experiences with others, the easier it is for them to tell their own stories and seek help when it's needed.​​

Although we at Talking Mental Health believe that sharing experiences of mental health issues can help people better understand and manage their conditions, we do not condone using this website as a substitute for clinically-approved psychological or medicinal treatment.​ If you think you may have a mental health issue or may be experiencing symptoms that could be related to one, we recommend seeing your doctor.
