Staff from Solent Mind have been giving us an insight into their work across Hampshire and the South of England, as Mental Health Awareness Week continues.
The charity's hosting lots of events across our region this week, to allow people to talk openly about the topic.
The events include drop in sessions, talks with experts and even places just to relax and talk with someone about how we're feeling.
With many organisations across the country raising awareness, the charity says we all have a part to play in helping people in need.
Dan Angus is from the charity's Portsmouth centre - he spoke to our reporter Jonny Freeman:
"We work day in day out to try and work and engage with as many people as we can.
"But yes - there is something we can all do.
"Certainly businesses can reach out to their employees and families can help their loved ones too.

Claire Grant is the charity's Head of Peer Support and Young People's services.
She says the topic's now so widely publicised, it's helping many people speak out when they need to:
"Having more high profile people talking about their mental health, having story lines like the one in Coronation Street at the moment, can only help people in need.
"It really helps to open up those conversations and make sure it's not such a taboo topic."
