David Bradley, Chief Executive at South West London and St. George's Mental Health NHS Trust, said:

"We are proud to be celebrating World Mental Health Day with our series of events throughout October. 

"We know that one in four of us will be affected by mental illness at some point in our life and that 9 out of 10 people say that their problems are made worse by experiencing stigma and discrimination."
