Stigma Free Lanarkshire

Stigma Free Lanarkshire (SFL), in partnership with NHS Lanarkshire and See Me,

The project brings people together who are passionate about ending mental health stigma and discrimination and enabling people who experience mental health problems to live fulfilled lives.

The SFL programme aims to create a positive and lasting change in people’s attitudes towards mental health so that individuals and communities can speak out, be understood, recover and flourish.

SFL has a small dedicated project team to deliver an ambitious programme focusing on four areas: Health & Social Care, Communities, Education and Young People, and Workplace. Organisations can make a commitment to end mental health stigma by signing the SFL Pledge and developing a bespoke action plan.

Pledge signatories include NHS Lanarkshire, Health & Social North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire Health & Social Care Partnership, New College Lanarkshire, Airdrie Academy, REACH Advocacy and Hope Café Lanarkshire.
