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!
I just had my first 'live' sighting of our Frank and Trisha tube posters on the District line. It's a busy media environment but I feel that visually they stand out. I'd be really interested to hear what you think of them and what kind of reaction you've seen on the tube and in cinemas as people have seen our advertising.
Norwich is one of the hotbeds of anti-stigma activity - there has been a huge amount of work going on there, and in Norfolk more widely, with Time to Change's Stuff Stigma project and Norfolk and Waveney Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust fantastic local champions of the anti-discrimination message.
