Inclusive Policies and Practices
The best way to show commitment to tackling mental health stigma and discrimination is to have it in policies that make commitments to good practice. This section aims to help you as a healthcare professional embed mental health inclusion in your practice.
Tackling mental health stigma and discrimination is foundational to mental health improvement. People with experience of mental health problems tell us when stigma and discrimination is removed, they feel valued, included, and respected. They can access services and support easily, have a more positive experience, and have greater control of their recovery.
Better care for people with experience of mental health problems will make a difference to you, your patient, and the NHS.
Our See Me, Value Me Tool which can be downloaded by clicking the image below, sets out how you will contribute to achieving the outcomes of improvement programmes in the NHS. It has been created with people who have lived experience of mental health problems and healthcare professionals.
