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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

The results will be written in terms of age range, nationality, male/female, not about specific people.
If you find out that someone has a mental illness do you feel uncomfortable?
Would it be easier if the person had a broken leg i.e. you could see the problem and how severe it was?
Do you feel that there are enough resources in the public domain to help people understand mental issues?
Would you say that having a mental illness carries a stigma with it?
If you developed a mental issue e.g. depression would you seek medical advice or try to battle on alone?
