Who are we and what do we do?
We are a group of York residents, employers, and employees coming together to share, as much or as little of, our mental health experiences through a variety of means to help end mental health stigma and discrimination in York. Our work includes projects on stigmatising language, the use of creativity (poetry, video, photography, blogs, art), radio interviews, and so much more, to change attitudes and beliefs towards people with experience of mental illness.

During 2021 we are focusing our efforts on ending mental health stigma and discrimination in our workplaces. We are looking for everyone (CEO’s, line managers, staff, retirees, HR professionals, health professionals, unemployed) with or without experience of mental ill-health to help us to create mentally health workplaces. Join the likes of Aviva, Benenden Health, Nestle, and Portakabin as we work to improve workplace wellbeing for everyone in York.
