A mental health campaign says there has been an increase in positive attitudes to mental health in Wales.
Time to Change Wales, which is run by three mental health charities, Gofal, Hafal and Mind Cymru, conducted a nationwide survey which found a 4.7% shift in how people perceive mental health.
This means that nearly 120,000 people in Wales have a more positive attitude towards mental health than in 2012, when the study was first carried out.
According to the NHS, 1 in 4 of us will experience problems with our mental health.
Campaigners say stigma and discrimination can make life with a mental health problem more difficult than the condition itself.
There has been an increased awareness of mental health in Wales, and an improvement in how we think we should treat people with mental health problems, according to the Time to Change Wales survey.
But they say there is still work to do, as evidence suggests that stigma ‘is still prevalent at home, in the workplace, and in society as a whole especially concerning aspects of life such as employment, housing and having children.’
The findings will be discussed at the ‘State of Stigma’ event, in the Pierhead Building in Cardiff Bay, today.
The campaign is funded by the Welsh Government and Comic Relief.
