1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year in the UK. Although mental health problems can be difficult to spot, it doesn’t make them any less significant than a physical health issue. 

Lloyds Bank conducted research* with Mental Health UK and found that 67% of people in Britain feel society is more comfortable talking about mental health conditions now compared to 5 years ago. However, 3 in 4 still believe there is a significant stigma attached to people with mental health conditions, and nearly a quarter are still uncomfortable talking about mental health with a friend or family member.

This is why we’re working with Mental Health UK to help normalise these conversations, as we believe that ending the culture of silence will make it easier for us all to offer the right support to the people around us who need it.

“Too many people living with a mental health problem feel isolated and misunderstood. Yet we all have mental health so the more we talk and listen, the easier it becomes for everyone. This campaign will help get mental health out in the open, where it belongs”, Brian Dow, Managing Director of Mental Health UK
