We're Time to Change, a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health.
Our aims are to:
- Improve public attitudes and behaviour towards people with mental health problems.
- Reduce the amount of discrimination that people with mental health problems report in their personal relationships, their social lives and at work.
- Make sure even more people with mental health problems can take action to challenge stigma and discrimination in their communities, in workplaces, in schools and online.
- Create a sustainable campaign that will continue long into the future.
Since Time to Change began in 2007, around 4.1 million adults in England have improved attitudes towards mental health problems – that’s an improvement of 9.6% between 2008 and 2016. And more people than ever are able to be open about their mental health problems.
Recently the City of Wolverhampton Council signed the employers ‘Time To Change’ Mental Health Pledge - http://www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/article/13596/Council-takes-pledge-to-end-mental-health-discrimination
Black Country Chamber of Commerce have also been part of this initiative - https://www.blackcountrychamber.co.uk/news/article/back-country-chamber-supports-time-to-talk-day-2018/
We encourage other firms and organisations to get involved too - https://www.time-to-change.org.uk/get-involved/activity/persuade-your-employer-sign-time-change-pledge
