Mae gan nifer fawr ohonom ddiddordeb mewn iechyd meddwl am ryw reswm neu'i gilydd. I rai, mae'r diddordeb yn deillio o brofiad personol yn ystod eu bywyd. Hwyrach inni ddioddef o drallod meddwl ein hunain, neu wedi gweld rhywun yn agos atom yn dioddef. Hwyrach inni ddefnyddio gwasanaethau iechyd meddwl yn y gorffennol neu ar hyn o bryd, neu yn adnabod rhywun agos atom sy'n eu defnyddio. Mae llawer ohonom am gyfrannu a rhannu ein syniadau, sgiliau, gwybodaeth, profiad ac arbenigedd yn y gobaith y bydd pethau'n gwella.
