We are supporting the 'Time to Change' pledge to tackle stigma and discrimination amongst people who experience mental health problems. One in four people will experience some type of mental health problem at some point in their lives. Amongst this group of people, nine out of ten will experience some form or stigma or discrimination, such as reduced opportunities for employment, disparity in allocation of financial support from the government or being treated differently when trying to access healthcare services. Raising awareness helps people tackle stigma and leads to a greater understanding of mental health in general. We support Time to Pledge campaign. Check their wall and see if you can find our pledge!
