Public Life Matters 2017

Becoming

more involved in your community (for example, by volunteering for a charity or joining a community council) can help in your recovery from mental illness. Taking an active role can widen our life experiences and connections and give us new purpose.

Mental health is  now getting much greater political attention. This will open up opportunities for people with mental health conditions. It might mean joining a local organisation, standing for elected office, becoming part of a school board, getting  involved in a university research project, or getting involved in the work of a f statutory  agency.

Public Life Matters aims to identify, and inspire solutions to, the barriers that might prevent or deter people with mental health conditions from realising these new opportunities.
