Abstract

Mosaics of Meaning was launched in 2005 to research and address the stigma associated with mental health problems in partnership with Scotland’s largest black and ethnic minority communities. Its unique programme of research and community action has involved training community workers in research skills and mental health issues, and using community development principles to address stigma and raise awareness at ground level. In the process, a powerful, evidence-based model of community engagement has been developed, a model which can be confidently applied in many other community settings.
