Walk a Mile Moray

Challenging stigma.
One conversation at a time.

Join SAMH, See Me and ‘Walk a Mile in someone else’s shoes’ to challenge mental health stigma. Our aim is to bring together professionals, carers and people with lived experience for a friendly conversation about mental health as they walk around Cooper Park, Elgin in pairs.

People will get the chance to see each other as they really are and not as the labels they may have.

Inspired by Chris Young’s walk around the edge of the UK, Walk a Mile is a series of events organised by See Me, Walk a Mile, and our partners to highlight the experiences of people with mental health problems.
