1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem at some time in their lives. Three quarters of us know someone with a mental health problem.
Scottish Mental Health Week takes place each year to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues.
‘See me’ is Scotland’s national campaign to end the stigma and discrimination of mental ill health. According to ‘see me’ statistics, 81% of people with lived experience of mental ill-health have experienced stigma, yet nearly 90% of the public think that people with mental health problems should have the same rights as anyone else.
Get involved with the ‘see me’ campaign by visiting the See Me website.
