Mental health service users are one of the most socially excluded groups in society. Surveys indicate that younger people have less understanding of their own and others’ mental health. In this article we discuss attempts to promote a psychosocial understanding of mental health in schools and describe a brief classroom-based intervention in a secondary school. It emphasises the importance of psychologists and service users working together to challenge discrimination against people with mental health difficulties.
