We’ve had a brilliant response to our latest burst of Time to Change advertising. We want to thank you for joining the conversation and helping us to get out the message that you don’t need to be an expert to talk about mental health – together we’ve reached a lot of people!
The new TV advert which launched on Monday 14 January has drawn thousands of people to the Time to Change website to pledge and find out more.
- More than 46,000
people visited the Time to Change website in the
first week of the advertising – that’s nearly five times more than usual!
- We’ve gained more than 3,000 new Twitter followers since the advertising launched.
- One thousand people signed our pledge wall in the first three days of the advertising.
You’ve also helped us to
start lots of conversations on social media by sharing our messages. And some
of you have written brilliant blogs
us about your own experiences.
