We recently stumbled across a blog entitled “Mental Health and Me: What it’s like to travel with a mental illness” and thought it was worth a share.
Travelling often comes up as a barrier to involvement in opportunities amongst our members so, when Airport Parking Shop presented the following figures you can see why the team weren’t surprised.
When asked “Has your mental health ever stopped you travelling?”
74% of respondents said yes.
And to “Do you think there is enough support in the tourism industry for those travelling with a mental illness?”
You won’t be surprised No was the most given answer.
What have your experiences of travelling with mental health issues been?
