Helping Others campaign
The ‘Helping Others’ campaign, is part of a wider programme of work in schools and workplaces to help reduce stigma around mental health. The campaign has been partly funded by Comic Relief.
The TV advert encourages the public to reach out and support someone they know who may be experiencing problems with their mental health, as it is important that we support each other.
Asking, listening and talking to someone with a mental health problem can be the start of their road to recovery. Just a few little words can make a big difference to someone who may need help.
