A new study published today (Wednesday 11 June) in The Lancet Psychiatry journal suggests that Time to Change, England’s mental health anti-stigma programme run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, is having a positive effect on public attitudes and that stigma and discrimination in relation to mental health might be more prevalent without the campaign.
New research released today (Wednesday 26 March) shows a shocking 93 per cent of people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities who have mental health problems face discrimination because of them (1).
The report shows people are trying to cope with discrimination across various areas of life, such as finding and keeping a job, relationships and friendships, and social life; and suggests that people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities are facing discrimination in double the number of areas as the wider population.
The number of us taking the time to sit and chat with someone close is dwindling, according to new research from the mental health anti-stigma programme Time to Change, which shows that two thirds of people (66%)1 admit they should talk to family and friends more often than they currently do.
The findings are released today - on the first ever national Time to Talk Day (6 February) which aims to spark one million conversations about mental health.
