It’s time to act because:
- Over a third (34%) of people are still too embarrassed to ask for support.*
- Young people are saying they feel stigmatised by mental health professionals.*
- Nearly half of us (44%) trying to access treatments like talking therapies feel like we’re not supported on time.**

**Care Quality Commission (2022) Community Mental Health Survey (2021) Statistical Release
Let’s take action to change this on World Mental Health Day 2023.
