Four Assembly Members have written blogs about their mental health problems, in the hope it will encourage others to speak out as well.

Eluned Parrott, Ken Skates, David Melding and Llyr Huws Gruffydd have joined the Time to Change Campaign which aims to reduce the isolation and stigma for people in Wales who suffer with mental health problems.

One in four people here will suffer mental ill health at some point in their life, but many people are too embarrassed to talk about their experiences and some are even too frightened to ask for help.

That's why Cath Lindley from the Time to Change says it's so important that high profile people, like AMs, speak out and support their campaign.
