The next Live It Library event is happening this Friday, 3 October in Maidstone. The Live It Library is an opportunity to challenge stigma about mental health issues. The Live It Library is an online resource of people telling their stories about experiences with mental health. This can be the individual themselves, carers, friends and relatives and even mental health professionals. The aim of the library is to share stories, challenge stigma, promote understanding, to offer hope and to enable people to speak honestly about their experiences.
How you can get involved:
The Live It Library wants anyone who has experience of mental health issues you could be a carer or professional or maybe have your own experiences, who is willing to be recorded for the website to come and get involved. These stories will become part of a resource that allows individuals, professionals and groups to easily access our participants or ‘books’ and it is hoped that our story tellers can become involved in training and events to talk about their stories and experiences.
The Live It Library is a collaborative project being hosted on Live It Well between Live It Well (KCC), Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust and Rethink Mental Illness.
