Nightingale Hospital – 8 May 2017

With Mental Health Awareness Week this week (8-14 May), Nightingale Hospital have polled 200 members of the general public regarding their awareness of mental health services and how to access mental health treatment.

The survey results indicate that:

  • 97% of respondents know someone who has suffered from a mental health   condition
  • 44% of respondents don’t know the difference between a psychologist, a therapist and a psychiatrist
  • 39% of respondents wouldn’t know how/where to access mental health treatment
  • 92% of respondents think there needs to be more information on how to access mental health services

These statistics are quite worrying, and clearly highlight the need for more information on how and where to access mental health treatment. The Heads Together Campaign in the first 4 months of 2017 has gone a long way to combat the stigma associated with mental health, but there is still a long way to go.
