Surrey Mental Health Stigma survey
Mental health problems are very common – with approximately 19% of adults experiencing anxiety and or depression in the past week. Unfortunately, stigma and discrimination due to people’s poor mental health are also prevalent. Nearly 9 out of 10 people with mental health problems say that stigma and discrimination have a negative effect on their lives according to the Mental Health Foundation.
End Stigma Surrey is the local campaign and programme to raise awareness and reduce negative attitudes and stigma around mental health. To help target this programme to where it is most needed, people with experience of mental health issues (for example experiencing it as a carer, family member, friend) are encouraged to share details of any stigma or discrimination they have experienced, or may experience.
Take part in the End Stigma survey, this should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Alternative versions of the survey in Easy Read, screen reader accessible and large print formats are also available online or can be requested using the contact details below.
Professionals are encouraged to share details of the survey with people they support.
