"This country is making huge progress in tackling and demystifying the problems of mental health. Taboos are being lifted. Discussions are being held with a frankness that would not have been possible 20 or 30 years ago. We have far greater understanding and confidence about what can be done. We know that people can be helped, that therapies exist, and that they are effective, that seemingly invincible darkness can be dispelled and that people’s lives can be turned around."
