We thought we’d draw your attention to an interesting blog on the Airport Parking Shop website. Mental Health and Me: What it’s like to travel with a mental illness contains some interesting figures and quotes from the website’s research with people who suffer mental health problems.
They sent out a survey over social media earlier this year, with questions designed to get an idea of what travelling was like and what issues may be faced by those with an illness, their family members or carers alike. They say:
“The answers sometimes shocked us and broke our hearts, but we were equally warmed by the sense of community and the openness and honesty of everyone that took part.”
The article touches on everything from personal anecdotes to quotes from mental health charities, and insurance to tips on travelling with a mental illness.
