Just a group of mental health sufferers who want to help others
We’re a group of mental health sufferers that are trying to lessen the stigma around mental health within the world. We want to create a safe place for people to communicate with like minded people, who can offer personal support and advice to each other. We want to spread positivity, even during the darkest of times. Nobody should ever feel alone, so let’s all aim to make the world a better place by breaking the stigma surrounding mental health!
Information taken from the WHO (World Health Organisation) states that approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem every year. In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression,) in any given week.
Reports from England & Wales, suggest that approximately 1 in 8 adults with a mental health problem are currently receiving treatment; with medication being the most common type of treatment for mental health problems. That means that 7 in 8 sufferers are not receiving any form of treatment, due to various reasons including fear, uncertainty, lack of support, shame, silence and living location. We want to give those 7 out of 8 mental health sufferers access to channels and individuals, who can promote improvements to their personal well-being.
As a company, “Mental Health Matters Group” are looking at different ways that we can help end the stigma. This includes collaborations with various businesses, including support groups, clothing lines, mental health workers, charities and hospitals. If you would like to discuss a potential collaboration with the “Mental Health Matters Group,” please send us an email via our ‘contact us’ section.
