Time to Change is an anti-stigma campaign run by the leading mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness
Mental health problems are common - but nearly nine out of ten people who experience them say they face stigma and discrimination as a result. Time to Change is England's biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination. There are lots of things you can do to help us spread the word about Time to Change, to get people talking about mental health, and support friends, family or colleagues. Mental health problems might actually be more common than you think. One in four of us will be affected by mental illness in any year. The effects are as real as a broken arm, even though there isn’t a sling or plaster cast to show for it.
Time to Change is currently seeking volunteers for their Time to Change events which will be popping up across the country. There are also lots of events taking place across England to help tackle discrimination, run by a variety of other organisations. Find out if there's one near you using this map.
