Link – ‘It’s nothing like a broken leg’: why I’m done with the mental health conversation

In one way, we want it to be seen as something we can talk about as easily as a broken leg. But there’s more to it.

“The truth is: enough awareness has been raised. We – the public, the health professionals, the politicians – need to make our words and actions count for more.”

Broken legs get treated, and arrangements are made to allow you to move about life as normally as possible with it. Mental health conditions? Not so much. There’s no 18-24 month waiting list to get your broken leg treated, no doctors giving you conflicting medications, no one not believing you when you say you broke your leg.

There’s still so much work to do.
