Most of us are familiar with the words ‘mental health’, We are used to hearing them mentioned on a fairly regular basis with some understanding of what it means and that we all have mental health. It was not always like this though. It was up until fairly recently largely associated with people suffering with depression. At times it has been almost taboo to discuss it, let alone admit you have a mental health issue for fear of being seen as weak, unstable, or mad. On the verge of being seen as some sort of disease you might catch just by touching someone with it! Does this attitude sound familiar? It should do if you grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. There was the same uneducated, ill-informed attitude towards AIDS. Now we have a very different attitude towards it because we understand it.
