Wonderful to celebrate World Mental Health Day at the Level with Nancy Platts and Catherine Wilson. The event was organised by Brighton Mind and we got a chance to talk to various organisations and charities providing support and advice for those experience mental health issues. Its important to remember that 1 in 4 of us will suffer from mental health issues in any one year. Shockingly, 9 out of 10 people will experience some kind of stigma and discrimination. While attitudes are improving, 13% of the public still believe someone with a history of mental health problems should be excluded from public life. My pledges - to share my mental health story and help others understand mental health. And to try and get elected as councillor, to prove that mental health should never be a barrier in public life.
