The reasons why we use your personal data

This privacy notice applies to the Surrey Mental Health Stigma survey.

What processing of personal data is undertaken by the service?

The Surrey Mental Health Stigma survey will collect information on the extent and nature of mental health related stigma and discrimination experienced by people directly and indirectly, for example by carers. This will help Surrey County Council know where they most need to target and focus the commissioned anti-stigma programme and will help to measure any changes in reported stigma and discrimination experienced in Surrey.

Aggregated results will be shared at an anonymous level in the form of reports from the results of the survey and focus groups, if they are run.

Personal data will be obtained from those individuals wishing to hear more about and/or be involved in the work of the anti-stigma programme.

Please note, by using the link to register your interest, you will be moving from Surrey County Council's website to an external web-based form created by the provider End Stigma Surrey.

What information is collected?

An ID survey number is generated and disclosed to the individual on completion of the survey in case you have an enquiry and wish to get in touch with the project team about your response.

If you wish to hear more about, or be involved in, the anti-stigma campaign/programme, you can choose to give the End Stigma Surrey provider your:

  • Name
  • Email address

If focus group discussions are run, the provider will collect your anonymous expressions and opinions relating to mental health related stigma and discrimination where you choose to share these in the focus group discussions.
