People’s Stigma Free Network
Stigma Free Lanarkshire is so much more than a programme of work, it’s about every person in Lanarkshire using their voice to take action.
Join us in our community of like-minded people, a Stigma Free People’s Network where you connect to others and share learning. We encourage all members to help shape the network to ensure that it’s accessible, relevant, and effective for you.
Whether you have a personal connection to mental health struggles or simply want to contribute to a more understanding society, your presence and input will be highly valued.
If you live, work or study in North or South Lanarkshire we’d love to hear from you. Let’s work together to create a stigma-free Lanarkshire where everyone feels heard, understood, and supported.
People’s network aims to empower individuals by providing them with resources, information, and tools to improve their understanding about people who face mental health stigma, accessing opportunities to discuss these issues with like-minded people.
