Mental ill-health is an issue which, directly and indirectly, affects many people in our society. Yet, people facing these challenges continue to experience serious levels of health inequality, stigmatisation and discrimination in society.
Our work is dedicated to tackle stigma and discrimination around mental health. Our campaigning work focuses on raising awareness on issues relevant to mental ill-health.
We provide information resources for the general public, awareness campaigns in the media and specific programmes in education, communities and workplaces.
