I was recently invited to join a new group of Service Users and Carers.

Rethink Publications Advisory Board will send literature/brochures which they plan to publish to this committee with a view of gathering our responses regarding the use of language, images etc.

It seems quite a positive move, they appear keen to de-stigmatise Serivce Users, although saying that the one they sent out first for comment, was a rough guide to the different types of mental health diagnosis, and included a picture of a young, unshaven man....:eek:

When I read everyone's reactions I was pleased we'd concurred!

That's great Quinonostante - your being involved I mean :). The fact that you were able to point out the stereotyping shows exactly why SUI is so important!

Let us know how you get on - I'd be interested to hear your experiences.

Nick.
