People With Mental Health Problems Say Partners 'Not Fazed' When Told About Their Condition

 Two in three (63%) people with mental health problems who tell their partners about their condition have said that partners 'weren't fazed' and were 'really understanding' when they first heard the news.

The UK's leading mental health charity Mind and the largest provider of relationship support, Relate, have today released research which shows that 77% of people with a mental health problems surveyed actively tell their partners about their mental health, and only 5% of those people said their partners broke up with them when they heard about their condition. 74% of a random sample of people with experience of being a partner of someone with a mental health problem surveyed said they weren't fazed or wanted to understand the other person's situation when they were told, and just 4% of those people said they felt afraid.
