With friends and family
You can be part of the See Us movement by making changes with your friends and family.
Our polling found that people most commonly experience stigma and discrimination from those closest to them, including friends and family. So it’s vital that people in the See Us movement are taking action, and making a change.
On going and sustained change is the most effective way to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination. But we know that taking action has to start somewhere. We have resources and tools here for you, whether you want to learn more, host a small starter activity, do something big to get everyone talking, or want to make on going and sustained change.
What sorts of resources are you looking for?
Here you can see what resources we have which suit you best. Select the types of resource you want, let us know the size of action you want to take, where you’re at in your journey and the reason you want to take action. We also have a few recommended resources for making a change with friends and family, if you’re not sure where to start.
