The nation’s biggest mental health conversation is here, no matter where you are there are lots of ways to take part.

Prince Harry:

The experience I have had is that once you start talking about [experiencing a mental health struggle], you realise that actually you’re part of quite a big club.

Why is talking about mental health so important?

One in four of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year.

Everyone should feel comfortable talking about mental health – whenever they like. Talking about mental health reduces stigma and helps to create supportive communities where we can talk openly about our mental health.

That’s why opening up the conversation about mental health problems is so important – by talking about it, we can support ourselves and others.
