How do you think the ACDC Project will help people in Salisbury?
The ACDC Project enhances community awareness of mental health services and promotes a more positive attitude. Through door knocking, it informs householders about available resources and breaks down the stigma around mental health. We hope that the outcome of the research will be beneficial by providing much needed extra mental health funding to our local community.
