Doing a little research….wanna help?


I have a pretty good idea of the way the UK thinks about mental health (and sometimes discriminates) but I would love it if you would take a couple of minutes and answer the 5 questions below for me so that I can get a more global picture.

Please feel free to e-mail me directly to ensure your anonymity rather than using the comments option here. (Please use the comments section if you don’t mind people seeing your views.
NO names, e-mail, blog or website details of yours will be made available to the public via any article or blog post that I write.
The results will be written in terms of age range, nationality, male/female, not about specific people.

Question 1:
If you find out that someone has a mental illness do you feel uncomfortable?

Question 2:
Would it be easier if the person had a broken leg i.e. you could see the problem and how severe it was?

Question 3:
Do you feel that there are enough resources in the public domain to help people understand mental issues?

Question 4:
Would you say that having a mental illness carries a stigma with it?

Question 5:
If you developed a mental issue e.g. depression would you seek medical advice or try to battle on alone?

*Please add your age, sex and country details to your response.
Comments are very welcome.

THANK YOU for your help.
