Just Imagine

“Imagine a world where saying “I have schizophrenia” can be said as openly as “I have diabetes”

Imagine a world where parents could freely share with a neighbour that their son was in the psychiatric ward as they could if their son was in the hospital cancer ward.

Imagine a world where employers and colleagues supported workers who have had a breakdown as they would someone who had been in a car accident.

Imagine a world where landlords and other tenants would welcome a neighbour who had a psychiatric disability as they would someone in a wheelchair or with a guide dog.

Imagine a world that made mental health research,treatment and community supports a priority for society.

Imagine a world where people have the hope to ask for treatment and support to recover from mental illness.” www.coastmentalhealth.com.
