Mental health and learning disability are amongst the most misunderstood of charitable causes. Despite affecting a significant number of the population, unacceptable health inequalities still persist for people living with a mental health problem or a learning disability.
A severe lack of understanding and awareness in society all too often leads to stigma and discrimination which prevents people from living a full and empowered life as equal, valued citizens.
Our campaigning work is dedicated to raising awareness and influencing policy and public opinion in the areas of learning disability and mental health. We work together with people with lived experience of mental ill health or learning disability to speak out on the issues that affect them on a daily basis to affect positive change in attitudes and understanding.
Our mission is to keep on inspiring a positive change in the way people think about mental health and learning disability and encourage working collectively to support emotional wellbeing as a society.
Volunteers bring immeasurable value to all areas of Inspire’s work to support people living with mental health conditions or an intellectual/learning disability. Find out more about how you get involved with our work.
