Had a brilliant week, my busy-ness over the last few months has gained a bit of funding from the See Me Campaign.
This will be for a Community Innovation project in Hamilton and Blantyre, to fight mental health stigma with bibliotherapy.
“See Me is driving change across Scotland that will help prevent suicide, empower people who have been discriminated against. Many people will not seek support due to the stigma they expect to face and the self stigma of feeling a burden. No one should ever be made to feel ashamed or embarrassed to tell anyone that they experience mental health problems. Together, we have a shared responsibility to understand what mental health stigma and discrimination feels like and drive home the message that everyone is entitled to and deserving of help and support. To stigmatise and discriminate is to mark someone as different.”
If you are interested in having a fighting stigma session in your workplace or in a group, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
