Time to Shout About Mental Health

I suspect that I, and others like me who are working for the Time to Change mental health awareness campaign, have many hundreds and thousands of speeches and talks and interviews still to go before we finally bring the walls of taboo and stigma crumbling down. The whisperers are people who come up to me and, unlike those who just want to say thanks for the talk, raise something else, lean in towards me and say very quietly "thanks for talking about mental health and depression, it really helps". It is good that they talk. But bad that they feel the need to whisper.
