Crying Shame - a Priory Group survey about stigma and mental illness in Britain (PDF :acrobat:)

This new report from the Priory Group reveals that a shocking 72% of adults in Great Britain believe that there is a stigma associated with having a mental illness and describe people with mental illness as unpredictable (79%), dangerous (50%) and scary (49%). Less than half (45%) of the adult population think that people with long-term mental illnesses are able to lead independent, fulfilled lives.

Report attached below.
