Who we are

We're Time to Change, a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health.

Our voice is stronger and louder thanks to funding by the Department of Health, Comic Relief and the Big Lottery Fund. Our campaign is run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, and thousands more organisations have joined us to make change happen.

Since Time to Change began in 2007, 3.4 million adults in England have improved attitudes towards mental health problems – that’s an improvement of 8.3% between 2008 and 2014. And more people than ever are able to be open about their mental health problems.

But we’ve still got a long way to go, and too many people with mental health problems are still made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless.


We know it can be difficult to talk about mental health problems. That’s why we support communities, schools and workplaces to open up to mental health problems, to talk and to listen.

With the right support from those around them, people can recover and have equal opportunities in all areas of life.

Everyone’s attitude makes a difference.
Your attitude makes a difference.


Our aims:

  • Improve public attitudes and behaviour towards people with mental health problems.
  • Reduce the amount of discrimination that people with mental health problems report in their personal relationships, their social lives and at work.
  • Make sure even more people with mental health problems can take action to challenge stigma and discrimination in their communities, in workplaces, in schools and on-line.
  • Create a sustainable campaign that will continue in communities and workplaces long into the future.
