    Lightbulb Any Thoughts???

    Does anyone have any thoughts or theories as to why mental health adverts have disappeared from the media in the last couple of months??? The ones where they said things like "It's time to talk" etc???

    Or why they no longer show the advert where a young disabled man gets on a bus with help from a support worker, because he is going to work???

    Why do the media appear to have back-tracked on these issues???

    Expect the worst and hope for the best!!!

    I think the ads were paid for by charities; Mind had an awareness campaign and they paid for the "It's time to talk" ads and I think Leonard Cheshire might have made the wheelchair and bus ads. So there will have been a limited budget and so the ads would have only run for a while. Big shame as they were great and made some important points heard.
    May is stroke awareness month, there will be some media stuff from the stroke association I imagine!
