Time to Change are a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health problems. Time to Change Bristol Hub is a partnership of local organisations and people who are committed to ending mental health stigma and discrimination.
Time to Change Bristol is made up of the city council, Bristol Independent Mental Health Network (BIMHN), Wellbeans Initiative CIC and Rethink Bristol with support from partners across the city – including employers, unions, universities, police and the NHS.
Cllr Asher Craig, Cabinet Member for Public Health, Bristol City Council said: “One of our key ambitions is for Bristol to become a city where everyone feels safe speaking out about mental health issues and where we can secure the support we need when we need it. Becoming a Time to Change hub will be instrumental in the work to bring our city together to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination as part of our new ‘Thrive Bristol’ programme. We are leading this with Bristol’s Anti Stigma Alliance with the help of our local universities, employers and unions alongside our partners in the voluntary sector, NHS and police. By working together as a city and using the expertise and support offered by the national Time to Change campaign we be believe we can make great progress towards Bristol becoming a city free from stigma and discrimination around mental health.”

How is the Bristol hub run?
Time to Change Bristol hub is run by people with lived experience of mental health issues alongside organisations committed to challenging mental health stigma and discrimination that form the Bristol Anti Stigma Alliance (BASA).
The hub has a steering group made up of a wider partnership, with a Time to Change Champions group and hub coordinators group ensuring the work of the hub has lived experience of mental health leadership at its heart.
