It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health
Almost half of all Victorians will experience mental illness in their lifetime but too many people don’t speak up for fear of stigma and discrimination. It’s time to start a new conversation - mental health is something which affects us all.
The people profiled in It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health have shared their stories to illustrate how we are all affected by different mental health challenges, and to offer hope to anyone who may be struggling.
