Public Opinions on mental health - MHAW day 5

Today I received an email from an organisation who conducted a survey to find out what the public know about mental health conditions and what they really think of those who have the conditions.  The results are staggering.

I was shocked and surprised at some of the opinions for example: There is still as stigma that people suffering from mental health issues are more likely to be violent, but actually only 5% of violent crimes are committed by people with severe mental illness

Below is the full results of the survey. I would like to thank Mediacom for contacting me and  Benenden Health  for allowing me to publish the results.
