1 in 4 people have a mental health problem. Stigma associated with mental health makes people feel ashamed sad & alone. Let's change minds!I've been researching the effects that the stigma has on children with mental health problems over the last 12 years. I've designed a toolkit and framework to help children schools and communities tackle stigma. In 2009 the Tackling Stigma framework was piloted in 6 areas of the country and children and young people worked really hard to change people's minds about mental health - visit www.chimat.org.uk/tacklingstigma. The results have been amazing! My goal is to make sure that the message about tackling the stigma of mental health is in all of our minds. We can't do it without spreading the word. We need to break the silence and end the shame. Carrying the Olympic Flame will keep the message alive. Let's change minds together!
