As someone with depression and anxiety since 2004, I have first hand experience of poor Mental Health and the stigma attached. The stigma HAS to end and having a MH Champion for NI will help.

Mental health is so important and needs to be given a higher priority with adequate resource allocation. More talking therapies like Nexus NI which has impacted and changed lives for the better.
