Creative bids are invited from organisations that would help address anti-stigma issues relating to Mental Health with a particular focus on equality.

Despite supportive policy within Scotland, the experience of people with mental health issues in our communities is still poor. Stigma and discrimination faced by people with experience of mental health issues occurs not only within health and social care, but also within financial inclusion, employability, and education in the context of the social determinants of health and equality issues in relation to protected characteristics.

The Healthy Minds Network is supported by the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Mental Health Improvement Team and has a membership that includes a wide range of partners across Statutory and Third sectors. The team would like to invite creative bids from organisations that would help address some these issues with a particular focus on equality. Previous proposals included training, awareness raising, resource development and face to face activities to name but a few. Applicants would need to take cognisance of the current situation and restrictions in place regarding Covid-19 within their proposals.

Funding of up to £5000 can be applied for. They would welcome bids from statutory or voluntary sector organisations. And require the work to be delivered by 31st March 2021 and a summary report describing the work delivered and any recommendations for future practice soon after.
