2 Identifying mental illness

The next step is to ask more questions

  • About yourself
  • About your family
  • About your friends

Questions are a good place to start because:

  • Asking questions can help you find out if there’s a problem.
  • It’s just the same as asking questions about your physical health. Remember, the more we talk about our mental health, the less stigmatised it will become.
  • Mental health conditions can be hidden and asking questions can bring them out in the open.
