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!

First stop on Wednesday was the Briggate, one of the main shopping streets in Leeds, where we were lucky enough to work with some real anti-discrimination heroes.
