Stigma Free Lanarkshire

About Stigma Free Lanarkshire

Stigma Free Lanarkshire is a programme that aims to end mental health stigma and discrimination.

We are supporting Lanarkshire’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2019 to 2024 that pledges to work together to lift the stigma and discrimination often surrounding mental health, putting it on an equal par with physical health.

We know that tackling stigma and discrimination is foundational to achieving a mentally healthy Lanarkshire in every area of life from workplaces and education to Health and Social Care and communities. We want to collectively create the conditions for prevention and recovery, enabling people to lead fulfilled lives as defined by them.
