Prince Harry speaking out is a huge moment in changing attitudes towards mental health

Commenting on the interview with Prince Harry published in the Telegraph today, Sue Baker OBE, Director of Time to Change said: “Prince Harry sharing his experiences of mental health issues and the counselling he sought as a result of losing his mother will have helped change attitudes, not just at home but also overseas. It was a dream of mine 20 years ago that we’d see the royal family join sports people, music stars, politicians and business leaders as well as everyday people in sharing their mental health experiences in all sorts of communities.  We know, from our robust evaluation programme since the start of Time to Change ten years ago, that people speaking out helps to overturn generations of stigma by shifting outdated attitudes and challenging discrimination and that together we are making long lasting positive social change.”
