PEOPLE are being urged to take part in a new online survey about mental health issues.

Health bosses hope peoples’ answers will help them to better understand the general public’s experiences and attitudes towards mental health.

They also hope that carers and people with mental health conditions will take part in the online exercise which has been organised as part of the nationwide Time To Change campaign – a project supported by the Daily Echo calling for an end to mental health discrimination.

Hampshire Partnership NHS Trust, responsible for the county’s mental health services, has organised the survey and the results will be published in the new year. Everyone who takes part will remain anonymous.

The trust's, Caarol Bode saud: "The survey is easy to use and should only take a few minutes to complete. All the information gathered is completely anonymous."
