Time to Change

Too many people are made to feel ashamed or isolated because they have a mental health problem. Yet 1 in 4 of us will experience some type of mental health problem this year.

Time to Change is a national campaign that has been working for 10 years to fight this stigma and discrimination.

Charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness run Time to Change, and it works across schools, employers, the media and communities. Its aim is to foster a growing social movement to change how we think and act about mental health problems.

Time to Change Champions

In Greenwich we’re supporting Time to Change in a number of ways, in local schools, employers and partnerships. If you have lived experience of a mental health problem and want to get involved there are a number of ways, including becoming a Time to Change Champion.

Champions are working in lots of ways in Greenwich to tackle stigma. Email timetochange@royalgreenwich.gov.uk if you’re interested in becoming a Champion or to find out more.

Talk about it

One of the most powerful things we can all do is just have a conversation with a friend, family member or colleague about mental health. Sometimes it’s as simple as asking them how they are and really listening to the answer.  Opening up to mental health in this way can help to break the silence and shame around the subject.  Read more tips and about being there for someone you care about here.
