Saturday 10th October is World Mental Health Day.
We want to highlight the impact that not being #StomaAware can have on the well-being of people living with a #stoma. Discrimination and a lack of understanding can lead to depression and isolation for people who are already having to cope with long-term chronic illness.
This story from Vicky illustrates perfectly why we all need to get better
at talking about mental health and stomas.
We have a range of services to support you, your family members or friends if you or they are struggling to come to terms with life with a stoma or are looking for a friendly ear.
