The campaign has been launched to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10 October and will feature a six-month poster spree that challenges inappropriate language used to describe the mentally ill.
The posters will be displayed in GPs’ surgeries, health centres, colleges and libraries. They feature a scrabble board with words such as ‘bonkers’, ‘loony’, ‘schizo’, ‘nutter’ and ‘psycho’, explaining that such notions make it harder for people to admit they have a mental health problem.
The trust is also organising a series of events for the mentally ill and their carers, friends and families, including taster sessions in art.
