Summary of report contentAs part of Mental Health Awareness Week (8th–14thMay 2017). Healthwatch Bury created a survey to assess people's views on mental health stigma and its negative consequences. Healthwatch Bury collected 26 responses via a link to an online surveywhich was sent to the Healthwatch Bury membership and shared via social media. Paper copies of the survey were used during our engagement with the public at a Marketplace which washosted by the council and partner organisations at Bury Market, on 10th May. The majority of people surveyed agreed that people’s mental health in Bury is affected by stigma(58% agreed). 58% of the public who completed the survey selected ‘no’ to the question,‘Are you being affected by mental health stigma’? Surprisingly, only 36% chose the ‘Give support to the person’ option when asked ‘How would you challenge mental health stigma? No recommendations were made.
