See Me are holding a session for people to use their experience of mental health issues, to let them know what problems they have experienced in health and social care and to hear about their plans for tackling stigma in this area.

It will be a great chance for people to give their views, have their questions answered, share opportunities they know of, and become part of a network of like-minded people who want to influence, stay up to date, and have the opportunity to become involved in this strand of work going forward.

There will also be a great opportunity to see the kind of work you can become involved in, as See Me will be joined by a representative from the Scottish Government, who will discuss the Digital Heath and Social Care Strategy 2017-2022 and hear your views on it.

To register interest or get more information, contact benjamin.mcelwee@seemescotland.org

If you are a MWH member please contact Heidi if you would like to attend as we may be able to provide supportand register you with other members of the Champion collective.

Aims:

  • Share our work in health and social care with people with lived experience, sense-check our approach with them, and give them examples of specific pieces of activity we’re currently engaged in or will be in the near future.
  • Create a network of people who are interested in the work we are doing in health and social care, and want to be involved and/or kept up to date.
  • Create a network of informed people who may go on to volunteer with us on specific pieces of work.
  • Find out from people the best way of keeping them informed or asking for their participation in specific pieces of work.
  • Find out from people if they know of any opportunities within their local Health and Social Care Partnership or local area where our activity could strengthen work that is already going on in relation to stigma and discrimination.
