Several recent high-profile campaigns have highlighted the importance of maintaining our psychological health as well as our physical health.
Today's edition (May 26th 2015) of The Sun newspaper contains a special pull-out section on mental health. Dr Nick Davis from the Department of Psychology of Swansea University, who is quoted in the section, is pleased to see The Sun helping to end stigma around mental health issues. "Many people are unsure or embarrassed about seeking help for psychological worries, but would have no problem going to a doctor for physical problems. It's great that a national newspaper is helping to get information out there," said Dr Davis.
The Department of Psychology at Swansea University is internationally recognised for its research, including research into psychological health.
