Survey finds almost a quarter would hide mental health problems from family

Survey finds almost a quarter would hide mental health problems from family
- A new survey has found nearly one in four Irish people would hide a mental health problem from their family and friends. The survey of 1000 people over the age of 18 by Kantar Millward Brown for See Change also shows that one in 10 Irish people have mental health issues.
Paople are being encouraged to be more open about their acceptance of mental health difficulties.
The organisation is encouraging people to wear green ribbons throughout May in a bid to encourage conversations about the issue. Director John Saunders explains what they want people to do.
