Don't Get Me Wrong - Erik on the airwaves

I was in the radio studios again yesterday talking about our new campaign, which aims to show how stigma and discrimination affects people in everyday life. And I was privileged to have the opportunity to work with our new Time to Change pin-up boy, Erik, the star of the latest burst of our campaign. Ruby Wax calls herself the 'poster girl for depression' having featured in our campaign last year, so I think it only fair we call Erik our pin-up boy!

Are the times a-changing?

In the last few days we have been part of a media debate about Shirlena, the X Factor contestant who has been pulled from the show because she has a mental health problem.

Sustaining the change: our plans for the future

It's been a busy period at Time to Change as we plan for a second phase of the programme. As many of you will know, we're currently funded by the Big Lottery Fund and Comic Relief until September 2011- but we have always had a longer-term vision.

The international anti-stigma family

While Time to Change works within England, stigma and discrimination affect people with mental health problems worldwide - and we think of ourselves as being part of an international family of anti-stigma programmes. Over the last few years we have been proud to support campaigns in other countries as they get off the ground by sharing our learning - and in the last few weeks, we have welcomed two new additions to the family!
