THE PIONEERING Hope Cafe which works to stamp out stigma and discrimination against people with mental health problems has backed Scotland’s national anti-discrimination programme.

The Hope Café, in Greyfriars Church Hall, Lanark, signed the See Me pledge, which will see the two organisations working with each other to bring about changes in behaviour of those who stigmatize people with mental health problems.

The Café was set up by people who have experienced challenges to their mental health, to provide opportunities for people to engage in activities that are proven to support positive mental health and wellbeing.
