Mental health is just as important as physical health. The two are closely connected and should be considered together. However, too often mental health conditions are not openly discussed leading to lack of understanding, judgemental attitudes, stigma and discrimination.
This edition of Footsteps provides practical ideas for how we can break down stigma and discrimination and offer support and understanding instead. Resilience (the ability to cope with and recover from difficult situations) and the importance of talking about our feelings are key themes throughout the edition.
