getwestlondon is launching a survey to find out people's experiences of mental health.

With the support of Mind the mental health charity, the survey is being launched ahead of World Mental Health Day on Tuesday October 10.

National statistics say approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.

Mind states that while the overall number of people with mental health problems has not changed significantly in recent years, worries about things like money, jobs and benefits can make it harder for people to cope.

This research aims to shine a light on what people in our community are experiencing.

High profile campaigns, such as Heads Together, led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge alongside Prince Harry, have encouraged people to break the silence around mental health problems.

The Time to Change campaign, led by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, says: "For people with mental health problems not being able to talk about it can be one of the worst parts of the illness. So by getting people talking about mental health we can break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all."

Trinity Mirror, which owns getwestlondon , will be surveying people across the UK ahead of a mental health awareness campaign in October. The results will provide a reflection of our readers' experiences in each community across the UK - they might be very similar, or quite unique.

Please share your experiences in the survey above, which is also available here .
