With advances in technology making social media, blogging and vlogging more accessible than ever, the masses have taken to the platforms to share their experiences and opinions.
Mental illness is no longer the secret illness, everyone is talking about it and now the pressure is on to find better support and treatment.
Our own Prince Harry has recently come forward to talk about mental health problems, based on his own experiences following the well-publicised death of his mother, Princess Diana, when he was 12 years old.
He recently hosted an event for Heads Together, a mental health charity, where he advocated talking openly about the things which bother us.
With this new found awareness comes a stronger push for new treatments to help those who will have a mental health problem at some point in their life.
According to the mental health charity Mind, one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.
