To listen to people who have achieved successful and fulfilling lives despite suffering mental distress tell their inspirational stories visit the brand new Inspiring Lives website. The new website is an innovative multi-stakeholder project to challenge public misconceptions that people with experience of mental distress have limited life expectations.
The project benefits from the support of national anti-stigma organisations such as Time to Change and Shift, regional organisations such as the East of England Strategic Health Authority and local partner organisations which helped steer and develop the website project. Local organisations involved included Viewpoint, Herts Mind Network, Mind in Mid Herts, the Guideposts Trust, Crossroads Care, Hertfordshire County Council and the two Hertfordshire NHS Primary Care Trusts.
