What we’ve learned so far
We received £16 million from the Big Lottery Fund and £4.5 million from Comic Relief for our first phase of work, which ran between 2007 and 2011. View a summary of our learning during the first phase of Time to Change
We were awarded £16 million by the Department of Health and £4 million by Comic Relief to run a second phase of work between October 2011 and March 2015. The Big Lottery Fund awarded an additional £3.6 million in June 2013. The programme was built around three key approaches to tackling mental health stigma and discrimination: social marketing (including Time to Talk Day and ongoing media and digital work); social contact; and social leadership. We ran targeted work with children and young people, media professionals, employers, Black and Minority Ethnic communities, and LGB&T groups. We also piloted a local Time to Change campaign in Bristol.
The reports below summarise our learning from the second phase of work.
