Hidden Issue of Mental health highlighted

Sharing is caring!

24th May 2016

Last week was National Mental Health Awareness Week (16 – 22 May) and I met with local resident Gill Ball to show my support for her CogKNITive Therapy campaign.

Gill has got together with a few friends to knit a mental health “bandage”, which she wore on the steps of the Town Hall to show how, although physical ill health can often be seen straight away, mental suffering can often be invisible.

I think Gill has come up with an outstanding way of showing how we must challenge public attitudes to mental health and recognise that mental health should be treated with as much care as physical illness.
