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.
"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."
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
