The Stand Up Kid

Would you do this in front of your whole class? Your lecture hall full of undergraduates? Your colleagues in a meeting?

Three people in the lecture (at least) will have or have had a mental health problem. Think twice before you laugh next time.


  1. Love this new film and tho I have started talking to a few friends, training to be a time to change human book to tell some of my story but still fear of how those closest/employers might react keeps me quiet...
    thanks for sharing.
    take care lovely,

  2. Wow. Thank you so much for sharing this! Really powerful. I have the same dilemma as the comment above, not knowing how my colleagues would react if I were wholly honest (and I work in a mental health team ironically!) The stigma is inside as well as out there sometimes. Love your blog by the way. Inspiring.
