Who are we?
Just Us is a group led by women who have experience of mental health issues and of being in the criminal justice system. This group is supported by Willow, which provides a range of services to women who have had involvement with the criminal justice system.

Just Us was awarded funding from See Me Scotland to raise awareness surrounding the stigma experienced by women who have mental health issues and criminal justice involvement.

What we are inviting you to?
The group has created a film which highlights the collective experiences of women who have mental health difficulties and criminal justice involvement.

The film will be showcased on the above dates, and will be introduced by Just Us who will present an overview about the work they have undertaken to date. You will be invited to participate in group discussion centering around the issues arising, and there will also be a research based presentation, which looks statistically and empirically at the known issues faced by women in the criminal justice system.
