Grow the See Us movement!
The See Us movement is truly for everyone – so why not use your networks and connections to get even more people involved in tackling mental health stigma and discrimination?
When you see something that makes you feel uncomfortable, it’s easy to look the other way or tell yourself that it has nothing to do with you – and this has gone on for too long when it comes to mental health stigma and discrimination.
We want the people of Scotland to come together and recognise that it isn’t good enough for people who struggle with their mental health to still be treated unfairly – and do something about it.
Since its relaunch in 2021, the See Us movement has grown, with supporters located right across Scotland, in communities, workplaces, schools, colleges, healthcare settings and beyond – but we know more needs to be done to help tackle the stigma which still exists.
We’re calling on all of our supporters, and the wider Scottish public, to help us grow the movement even further still.
Below, we’ve got some social media downloads, messaging and printable materials to help you spread the word about the importance of the See Us movement to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination, and create a fairer, more inclusive Scotland for people who struggle with their mental health.
