#StillJustMe is our latest anti-stigma campaign.
Through a series of short films and blog articles written by mental health experts and those with real-life experience, we will shine a spotlight on some of the most poorly understood and stigmatised mental health problems, including:
– eating disorders
– depression and anxiety
– schizophrenia and psychosis
The WIMS Short Film Competition Awards took place in January here in St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services.
Congratulations to all of this year’s entrants.
