Mental health professionals

1 in 3 people report discrimination within mental health services. For some, this feels like being invisible.

Over the last few years there has been a significant improvement in public attitudes towards mental health problems but people continue to report experiencing discrimination within mental health services.

In 2015 we ran a pilot project with professionals and people using services to tackle this. The project helped thousands of mental health professionals to begin conversations about tackling stigma.

A full evaluation report for the project is available along with an executive summary

"As a result of the campaign we have changed quite a few things – and I can say that these changes wouldn’t have happened without the Time to Change campaign."
