Here at KC, we’re huge advocates for reducing the stigma surrounding mental health and offering support, resources and guidance to all of our students and staff. It’s not something anyone should ever feel ashamed of.
As we emerge from restrictions and start interacting with colleagues, friends and family more than we have done over the last few months, looking out for someone’s mental health is just as important as their physical health. Around one in five adults experienced some form of depression in the first few months of this year, more than twice as many as before the coronavirus pandemic struck. And the figures for 15-19 year-olds are even higher.
