One in four adults will suffer from mental health problems at some stage in their lives - and many campaigners believe funding to tackle the issue remains woefully inadequate.
That was the motivation for one young woman to contact ITV West Country - and make a film about her experiences of living with mental illness.
Katie Noonan from Honiton did that as part of our Breaking into News initiative at ITV - a scheme aimed at giving young people the chance to get involved in broadcasting.
She's received the support of not only her family and friends but her local MP.
Watch her full report, and listen to Katie live in the studio, on ITV WestCountry tonight at 6pm.
Here, Ben Bradshaw tells Katie what he thinks of her efforts.
