Share your experience with Mind to Mind
Hearing about the lived experience of others can help with life’s daily stresses. Change Mental Health is working with NHS Inform and Scottish Government on the Mind to Mind mental health resource, which features video and audio of different people talking about how they deal with life’s challenges.
They are looking to hear from more people about their mental wellbeing challenges to help others who may be going through the same.
We know that students face a range of additional pressures, so this is a great opportunity to share your experience and help others.
Have you experienced social isolation and loneliness, mental health stigma and discrimination, or is your mental health being impacted by the cost-of-living crisis and/or living in poverty? They would like to hear from you.
You might want to share, for example:
- The difficult patch you went through and the practical advice
- Tips and support that helped you
- Ups and downs and the challenges you’ve faced
- Tips for engaging with relevant and similar mental health support
If you are generally keen to share your lived experience of mental health and the things you do to look after your mental wellbeing, then that’s great – they want to hear from many people from many backgrounds and communities across Scotland!
Contact Kieran.Scott@changemh.org if you are keen to share your lived experience. They are able to offer you support to share your story.
