Survey: Have you, or has someone else you know, been affected by mental health?

[Robert Wheatley | Lifestyle Editor] According to the Mental Health Foundation, 1 in 4 people will experience a kind of mental health issue within a year, and worldwide it is estimated that mental health affects more than 450 million people.
