Major study shows state of mental health in UK

To coincide with the launch of Mental Health Awareness Week, the Mental Health Foundation have published a major study into mental health in the UK.

The study suggests that our collective mental health is deteriorating. Most people report experiencing a mental health problem in their lifetime. Only 13% of those surveyed reported having high levels of good mental health.

The study also showed that certain ages and demographics are more likely to experience a mental health problem. The risk is higher if you are female, a young adult, on low income, living alone or in a large household.

You can read more of the key findings and download the full report here. We will be posting on the website and on social media throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, talking about this year's theme of Surviving or Thriving. 

If you would like to help Herefordshire Mind make sure that no one in the county has to face a mental health problem alone, you can get involved locally or support us by making a donation.
