Like Minds Like Mine
With stigma and discrimination one of the major barriers to a person recovering from mental illness, Like Minds Like Mine is an education programme aimed at reducing both stigma and discrimination.
Promoting recovery and wellness, through a holistic approach, the service undertakes a range of anti-discrimination activities through:
- Local community groups
- Government departments
People who have experienced mental illness, are empowered to lead and drive this programme. They are further empowered to manage their own unique experiences of recovery and to share their personal stories to raise awareness of mental illness and to break down barriers of stigma and discrimination.
Groups within the community are welcome to attend free workshops and training. Self-referral is another option to becoming involved with LMLM.
