    It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health
    Almost half of all Victorians will experience mental illness in their lifetime but too many people don’t speak up for fear of stigma and discrimination. It’s time to start a new conversation - mental health is something which affects us all.

    The people profiled in It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health have shared their stories to illustrate how we are all affected by different mental health challenges, and to offer hope to anyone who may be struggling.

    You can find more information on the series by searching #timetotalkvic.

    If you or someone you know needs support, call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or beyondblue on 1300 224 636. In an emergency, call 000.
