"We've got to break through and break down the stigma and shame. We've got to make clear that mental health is not a personal failing. Right now it's our country which is failing people with mental health issues," she said

We have had prime ministers, princes and princesses talking about it on this side of the pond, now the leading candidate to be the next US president pledges to address mental health as part of her policy programme if elected.

There is truly a growing momentum behind the campaign to break down the stigma associated with mental health and to work towards parity of treatment with physical health.

With World Mental Health Day approaching on 10 October, there is no better time to think about what your organisation is doing in this vital area.
