Surveys of mental health services users consistently report stigma as a major barrier to recovery. Service users from black and other minority ethnic groups, of course, suffer double discrimination. This article describes a pilot project in which service users and staff from two voluntary sector organisations organised an awareness‐raising event for pupils in an inner city school to challenge and inform them about mental illness.
