Join Us & Make a Difference
Every human interaction represents an opportunity for one person to treat another with dignity — a dignity encounter. Individuals and families affected by mental illness can often describe what dignity should look like. Sadly, however, most experience something wholly different.
The experiences of people with mental health problems and their families, whether at home, in education, work or in wider society often fall short of what we should expect because of stigma, discrimination and prejudice. In short many people with mental health problems feel that their dignity is violated. This cannot continue.
We need a movement and collaboration to tackle this because no one is immune to mental illness and the World Dignity Project provides a platform for this, bringing together patients, mental health service users, families, carers, professionals from all walks of life and institutions from across the spectrum.
The stigma of mental illness can no longer be tolerated. We can no longer be bystanders. We must do something. Join us and make a difference.
