We are appealing for volunteers who have direct personal experience of mental distress either as a user of services, through personal self-management or as a carer to take part in our exciting anti stigma project.
People with mental health problems can experience prejudice and discrimination, many state that the stigma of mental ill health is more disabling than the illness itself. Therefore we want to work with you to challenge attitudes towards mental health discrimination and assist in achieving a recognisable shift in local public attitudes.
You don’t need to have experience of working on a project only an interest to take part and work with other liked minded people to help develop a range of activities that will help break down barriers in relation to mental health. We want to encourage people to talk openly about the subject and you will be part of this change. You will be a valued member of the steering group, helping to develop and design the programme to be delivered in locations across Middlesbrough. Your involvement can be as large or as small as you wish.
Activities include filming, local radio and assisting Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind with local campaigning such as World Mental Health Day.
If this something you would like to be involved in, please email email@example.com with your completed application form.
