Learning From Others
Every organisation has different strengths and challenges when it comes to tackling stigma and discrimination. Find out more about the impact of dealing with a variety of situations, including on the individuals in workplaces.
The workplace can often be a difficult place to disclose a mental health problem and too many people are leaving the world of work because they can’t get the support they need.
Hope however is a watchword at See Me. We see organisations which do commit to change and we work with people with experience of mental health problems whose recovery is real and inspiring to others.
You can learn what they have done here, and take it to your workplace.
