Mosaics of Meaning Handbook: a guide for health improvement practitioners to tackle stigma of mental health with BME communities

    Research output: Book/ReportOther report

    Abstract

    Mosaics of Meaning was launched in 2005 to research and address
    the stigma associated with mental health problems in partnership
    with Scotland’s largest black and ethnic minority communities. Its
    unique programme of research and community action has involved
    training community workers in research skills and mental health
    issues, and using community development principles to address
    stigma and raise awareness at ground level. In the process, a
    powerful, evidence-based model of community engagement has
    been developed, a model which can be confidently applied in many
    other community settings.
