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, however people continue to report experiencing discrimination within mental health services. 

For the past 18 months we’ve run a project with professionals and people using services to tackle this. The effectiveness of the work was evaluated independently and we’ve now received the results of this evaluation.

"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."

We’ve produced a report, which is available along with the Executive Summary produced by our independent evaluators.

Our evaluation found:

  • Improvements in the attitudes
  • Improvements in intended behaviour 
  • Changes in actual behaviour to improve the experience when using mental health services
  • The project helped thousands of mental health professionals to begin conversations about tackling stigma
