We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in our recent survey. We are delighted to announce that the results of the 2024 Surrey Stigma Survey will now be published in April due to an overwhelming response from the community. The analysis process has experienced a slight delay, ensuring that every voice is heard, and every insight is thoroughly examined. This initiative has garnered an incredible response, with a significant number of participants sharing their valuable experiences and perspectives.

We encourage everyone to stay tuned and explore the findings once they are released. It is through understanding these experiences that we can work together to eradicate stigma and create a more inclusive and supportive environment for mental health in Surrey.

“Your input is invaluable, and together, we can make a difference.”
Joe Stroud, End Stigma Surrey

The Surrey Stigma Survey, originally conducted in November 2021, aimed to gather insights from individuals in Surrey who have encountered mental health challenges firsthand or indirectly, whether as a person dealing with mental health issues or as a supportive caregiver, family member, or friend. We sought to shed light on any stigma or discrimination they have faced or may still encounter. Many of the insights have already informed our policy, planning, and communications.

As we prepare to unveil the newest survey results, we are also collaborating with our community partners to devise a strategic plan for addressing the issues highlighted in the findings. This plan will outline the next steps in our continuing journey toward ending stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health in Surrey.

We extend our gratitude to all who participated in the survey and contributed to this crucial conversation. Your input is invaluable, and together, we can make a difference. For further updates and information on the Surrey Stigma Survey, the results of the survey will be made available for public viewing on our website in April. Please visit our website at

Stay tuned, stay informed, and let’s continue our efforts to end the stigma surrounding mental health.
