A recent survey has found that two out of three workers are scared to tell colleagues about their mental health problems.

Mental illness is a subject that is extremely close to my heart. Depression, Nervous breakdowns, I have people close to me who suffer on a daily basis with mental illness and I find it a shame that it is still such a taboo subject.  This interactive video shows the prejudices that still surround mental illness in a touching yet humorous way.

Take a look and see how you would react.

I think it is a great video and really made me stop and think about things for a while. We can end the prejudice surrounding mental illness by talking about it openly and without fear. 
I've had guest posts on BigFashionista before about depression and phobias and Time To Change have a website you can visit -> Time-To-Change where you can find out more information about starting that conversation about mental health.
What do you think?

  1. Thats really good. Made me think. Good to laugh about these things too.


  2. I thought the video was really good. I'm not sure why but its like people find it easier to relate to illnesses like cancer but mental health is really a taboo subject. Things do really need to change for the better!

  3. I'm a sucker for using the 'fine' line. And I wouldn't dream of telling the people I work with mainly because I don't really like them all that much. Interesting video though.


Due to increased spam comments I am now having to moderate the comments I receive. I will do my best to get them approved quickly so please, carry on commenting as every time you comment a kitten smiles.
