Mental health support and counselling

The Big Stigma

Mental health issues are really common. Every year, 4 in every 16 young Aussies experience a mental health issue, but 3 of those 4 won’t get the help they need.

The more we talk about mental health issues, the easier it becomes for young people to seek help.

Visit headspace’s Big Stigma website for information on how to tear down stigma associated with mental health issues.

The more we share, the more we talk, the more we tear it down. #thebigstigma
