  • Are you interested in challenging mental health stigma and discrimination?
  • Are you 18 or over, and live in Worcestershire?
  • Do you have personal experience of a mental health problem?

If you answer yes to the above questions, please come along to the information session. Time to Change Champions are a movement of people across the country changing the way we all think and act about mental health by sharing their own experiences and encouraging conversations about mental health Champions run activities, get involved at events, speak out about mental health, tell their story online or in the media and much more! Being a champion is a flexible and voluntary commitment. You can do what you have time for, and what you’re comfortable doing.

Champions Fund

Funding of up to £500 is available for champions to use to run anti-stigma activity which sparks conversations about mental health. The activity can be as inventive as you like or part of a larger event e.g. stalls in shopping centres, pub quiz's, sports, art and craft activities, dog walks.
