New College Lanarkshire (Coatbridge Campus)
This month, the team delivered presentations to HNC and HND Counselling students at New College Lanarkshire (Coatbridge Campus). We wanted to raise awareness of the mental health landscape within Lanarkshire, and how Stigma Free Lanarkshire, and indeed stigma and discrimination, fits into this. Information on the Good Mental Health For All: North Lanarkshire Action Plan and the Lanarkshire Mental Health and Well-being Strategy was shared with the students to show the rationale for the work we do, and a brief summary of recent work in our four key areas was provided. The students’ response was very positive and they now have food for thought on their practice.
