March on Stress Director, Professor Neil Greenberg, appeared in The Telegraph on Wednesday 30 November 2016, giving his expert and insightful view into why people don’t seek help for their mental health.
In the piece, Professor Greenberg highlights how even with better attitudes and behaviour towards mental health, there is still a long way to go.
He said: “We are living through an era of profound change in our attitudes and behaviours towards mental health. For too long, mental health problems have been associated with weakness, with failure, and as a result too many sufferers have kept their conditions hidden, bottling up problems that can eventually be catastrophic for them, their families, their colleagues and the public.
“Now this is changing. But there is still a long way to go. And the further we are able to normalise the diagnosis, and treatment, of mental health issues, the better off we will all be.
“As a nation we need to do two things: first, to make it as easy as possible for sufferers to access professional help; and second, to ensure that evidence-based, high-quality care is made available in a timely manner.”
