Time to Change is England’s biggest ever campaign to end the stigma and discrimination that people with mental health problems face.
It is run by the national mental health charities, Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.
The Time to Change Champions Fund will support Champions to run activities which promote discussion about mental health.
Facilitating conversations between people with and without experience of mental health problems is one of the most powerful ways of improving attitudes towards mental health and reducing stigma and discrimination.
Whether it’s a film screening, running a stall at work, or hosting a coffee and cake morning – bringing people together is one of the most powerful ways of breaking down stigma and discrimination.
To download the guidelines and an application form, go to: www.wellspringhlc.org/cass or call Wellpring’s Community Access Support Team on 0117 911 9832 to request the information.
Please note, this fund is only available to Time to Change Champions.
Champions are people with experience of mental health problems who campaign to end mental health discrimination in their local communities.
The Champions network is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and campaign together to improve attitudes and break down stigma.
