Yougov poll
  • Limitations of the experiment (mental health disclosure on website)
  • Media attention (radio, newspaper, blog)
  • Facebook activity
  • Linked with yougov poll: 60% of us would not rent a room to someone with a mental health problem, more than three times as many as who would say no to someone with a physical health problem (18%).
afterwards
Afterwards
  • Underestimated friends/colleagues
  • Less ashamed to talk about it
  • Many students contacted me or colleagues concerned about their tutees
  • Internet can be a big help for many
  • Time to Change campaign inspired other countries
why stigma
Why stigma?
  • Brand, burning with a hot iron; stigmata
  • But mental illness mostly invisible
  • Very common: we all know someone who is affected by mental health issues
  • Feeling of shame (lazy, worthless, etc)
  • Fear (media portrayal of violent cases)
  • Lack of understanding; difficult to imagine what it is like or put into words.
time to talk
Time to talk
  • Get people to talk about it
  • Normalise mental illness
