“Shed your armour, show the scars” by See Me Scotland and Feniks
04 October 2022
The project “Shed your armour, show the scars”, was launched this week. It was created by Polish Community Ambassadors under the leadership of See Me Scotland and Feniks, and is a gauntlet thrown at the widespread phenomenon of mental health discrimination.
Armour, the campaign’s central theme, represents an emotional shield that protects men from various aspects of social judgement.
Consequently, the project calls for shedding armour and exposing one’s scars, symbolizing their harrowing experiences. It aims to encourage men, and their significant others, to speak up about their struggles and to actively pursue support.
It also calls on men who have overcome the challenges regarding ill psychological health to inspire others by sharing their experiences.
