10 CIC Annual review 2010/2011

CIC signs the ‘See Me’ pledge

Many people with care and support needs find themselves marginalised or misunderstood, defined by their conditions. That is why CIC is committed to promoting greater inclusion for everyone we support and playing our part in ending stigma and discrimination.

CIC was founded upon the vision that everyone has the right to be a part of society. Across our organisation all of our services play their part in turning this vision into a reality, from building their community presence to supporting social inclusion events.

Our passionate Mental Health forums in Scotland and England, dedicated to supporting good mental health and playing their part in ending the fear and prejudice associated with mental health conditions, are one example of this commitment.

In July, CIC signed the ‘See Me’ pledge. The ‘See- Me’ campaign is a Scottish campaign which sees organisations of all kinds make a public commitment to raising awareness about mental health issues in the workplace and beyond.

Teresa Fraser, Lead Service Manager for Scotland and chair of the Scottish Mental Health Forum, explains, “Promoting the good mental health of our staff and service users is a key aim of CIC’s Mental Health Forums, but alongside this, we also want to play our part in ending stereotyping and stigma.
