Time to Change campaign launches 'get well soon' cards

Hampshire residents are being urged to treat those with mental illnesses just the same at those with physical injuries.
As part of the Time to Change campaign, aiming to end the stigma attached to mental illness, artists have designed ‘get well soon’ cards for people with mental health problems.
Research has found that while 79 per cent of people would consider sending a card to someone with a physical health problem, only 50 per cent would do the same if it related to mental illness.
