SANE Australia's National Stigma Report Card!
SANE Australia is delighted to announce the launch of findings from the National Stigma Report Card, the most comprehensive research of its kind in Australia. For those who may not be familiar already, SANE Australia’s Anne Deveson Research Centre, in partnership with the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences and with the support of the Paul Ramsay Foundation, invited people living with complex mental health issues to participate in the Our Turn to Speak survey. The survey sought to understand how people’s experience with complex mental health issues impact the way they are being treated across different life domains.The insights from the almost 2,000 people who participated in Our Turn to Speak are a rallying cry for all of us to re-commit to our efforts to create an Australia where people affected by complex mental health issues are supported and included as equal members of our community.
On the National Stigma Report Card website, you can find out more about the research and hear real stories from people living with complex mental health issues, who are impacted by stigma and discrimination. There's also an online data explorer – an interactive tool where you can compare survey results from different life domains, mental health issues and demographics.
