Claudia Hammond reports on current issues in mental health, psychology and neuroscience. Claudia asks if the 'one in four' mental health statistic reduces or increases stigma. Martin Seager from the Men's Mental Health Research Team takes the view the statistic that one in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their life can increase stigma. Does this suggest that 75% are exempt from mental health problems? No, mental health is for everyone and mental health problems can effect anyone regardless. It's indiscriminate and mental health is for every human being.
