TIME TO TALK TIME TO CHANGE

05 Feb

I  wrote in a blog last year with guarded optimism that the stigma of mental  illness was declining but sadly at the present time 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.
Feb 6 Today the programme Time to Change, England’s biggest programme has been launched to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination.

There are lots of simple, everyday ways you can support someone who has a mental health problem.
