#StillJustMe

#StillJustMe

Our#StillJustMe advocacy campaign works to break down stigma around mental health difficulties.

#StillJustMe

Eating disorders, depression and anxiety, schizophrenia and psychosis, and addiction, are among the most poorly-understood and highly-stigmatised mental health difficulties, both in Ireland and across the globe. For anyone experiencing mental health challenges, stigma can be a barrier to seeking help.

#StillJustMe aims to change this.

As part of this campaign, a series of short films and blog articles, written by mental health experts and those with lived experience of mental health difficulties, shine a light on some of the most prevalent mental health issues facing Irish society.

Divided into four phases, each short film from #StillJustMe focuses on a different mental health issue and was launched to coincide with an international awareness day.

You can watch these films and read the pieces accompanying them all below.

 

Psychosis

Our #StillJustMe film focusing on psychosis launched to mark the birthday of Lucia Joyce, James Joyce’s daughter who experienced schizophrenia. Psychosis is a distressing difficulty in which thoughts and emotions make it hard to determine what is reality and what is not.

Addiction

On International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, we launched our #StillJustMe series focusing on substance use disorders, stigma, and recovery. Recovery is possible, one step at a time, creating the opportunity to break free from the chains of that substance to a new version of you.
