How can mapping, connecting and sharing resources pan-equality help address the challenges we face surrounding mental wellbeing?
We know from our members that there is now a stronger need than ever to find out information and share resources. A lot of groups are isolated. Online peer-peer support groups and campaigns exist but can be hard to access unless you are already in those networks. Lots of resources are being spent collating resources and developing good practice and local contacts, potentially duplicating work and missing opportunities.
We are all having to change how we practice - fast - but we need to work together and share now more than ever. We have come together to work across our equality networks to build the NetEquality project - looking at how digital tools can help. We think that mapping, connecting well, and sharing expertise / resources / information can help to address inequalities, by increasing opportunities for solidarity and strengthening campaigns. For the first event, we are focussing on Mental Wellbeing.
Join us in the conversation to put into practice working together and connecting pan-equality, to build solidarity and strengthen our campaigns!
We are offering grants to pay for peoples’ data etc. as we want to include people who are ‘digitally excluded’. Peer activists, user-led Mental Health projects and Experts by Experience can apply to have expenses reimbursed via HEAR digital exclusion work.
