Communities and Priority Groups
We work with different communities and groups across Scotland, to help tackle stigma and improve the lives of those who are at most risk of experiencing stigma and discrimination.
Mental health is part of everyone's day to day life, it affects us all, but it can also affect people differently because of things like sexuality, race, age and disability. In many communities dual stigma is a big issue, with mental health and sexuality for example, there are two things can people can discriminate against, making it even harder to talk about.
No one understands the issues, barriers and solutions to ending mental health stigma and discrimination better than those who have experienced it, so at See Me we've been working with partners in different communities to ensure that we're able to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination more widely.
