Community means different things to different people. For most, a community should be a safe place where you feel valued and heard. We can break down and tackle mental health stigma by raising awareness with individuals, groups, and the wider communities of Lanarkshire. It is vital that we create understanding around the hugely negative impact that mental health stigma and discrimination has on individual’s, those around them and for society as a whole.
