THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SIGNS

In the week leading up to World Mental Health Day, we conducted a video call social experiment to explore how easy it was to miss the signs someone might need your support. We worked in partnership with psychologist Sabina Read, to demonstrate how a person's internal world may manifest in their external environment or appearance, and the importance of monitoring changes in the way a person thinks, feels and behaves.
