Event description: Time to Change is England’s biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination. Nearly nine out of ten people who experience Mental health problems say they face stigma and discrimination as a result. This can be even worse than the symptoms themselves. Thursday 6th February is a day to get people talking about their problems, experiences and raising awareness that like our bodies, our minds can become unwell, so starting a conversation about mental health is important. It helps people to recover. It can strengthen a relationship between friends, family and colleagues. And it starts to take the taboo out of something that affects us all.

Time to Change is an anti-stigma campaign run by the leading mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.These two charities decided to work together, combining their knowledge, skills and expertise, in the biggest attempt yet in England to end the discrimination that surrounds mental health.
