We aim to work with all sectors and communities to encourage more open conversation about mental health and ensure that people with mental health problems can be equal and active citizens.

Time to Change combines a national campaign with community activity.

We fund grassroots anti-stigma projects through our grants scheme, and support people with experience of mental health problems to become active social leaders.

We also work with the media, a wide range of organisations, BME communities and children and young people.

We have been running since 2007 and our work is proven to be having a positive impact on public attitudes as well as reducing the discrimination that people with mental health problems face.
