Become a Time To Change Worcestershire Champion  

We are encouraging people to sign up as champions to campaign to end mental health discrimination in their communities.  

If you feel ready and able to open up to people about your personal mental health experiences, you could think about signing up to becoming one of our Time to Change Champions. We can change the way people around us think and act about mental health every day. You don’t need to wait for other people to talk about mental health – you can bring it into the conversation yourself. This can help people around you to open up to mental health by seeing it as an everyday topic that’s OK to talk about. 

Champions run activities, get involved at events, speak out about mental health and much more! If you are over 18 years old and have personal lived mental health experience and want to make a difference by joining others to challenge stigma and prejudice in mental health, let us know by contacting Sarah or Amanda timetochangeworcestershire@comfirst.org.uk 01684 312730 

Time To Change Champions can apply for up to £500 funding to help challenge mental health stigma in Worcestershire. The funding must be used to spark conversations between people who have experienced mental health problems and those who may have not. Talking about mental health problems and sharing real life stories helps to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems.
