They effect us just as much as any other illness, except you can't see them.
Although mental health problems are very common, affecting around one in four peoplein Britain, stigma and discrimination towards people with mental health problems is still very common and there are a lot of myths about what different diagnoses mean.
There is also a lot of controversy about the way mental health problems are diagnosed, what causes them, and which treatments are most effective.
