Hello ,

We hope you're well.

If you've been kind enough and motivated enough to donate to Time to Change we, everyone who works on the campaign, would like to say a big thank you and let you know we appreciate your help and support very much.

Time to Change is a social movement that works tirelessly to confront the stigma and discrimination many of us experience when we're unwell. We aim to give mental health parity with physical health.

Two Thirds of people experiencing poor mental health say that the stigma and discrimination they encounter is as bad, if not worse, than being unwell. No one should have to feel ashamed about being unwell.

We work with over half the secondary schools nationally, over 1000 employers and in 54 regional locations. We have over 8000 Time to Change Champions, from 18 years up, engaging in social contact activities in their workplaces and local communities,all confronting stigma and discrimination around mental health.

Your donations and your support help us continue to do our work. Thank you, from all of us.

mental health doesn't discriminate and neither should we.

Remember, almost all of us will know someone ( friend, family, colleague, partner) who is or has been unwell. And some us will be unwell ourselves. It's important that we continue to talk. Talking changes and saves lives.

Taking the time to connect with someone, to check in, say hello, tell someone you love or appreciate them can make all the difference. Talking with someone openly about your or their mental health is often the first step to recovery.

If you'd like to know more about becoming a Time to Change Champion we'd love to hear from you.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

At Time to Change we fight to eriadicate the stigma and discrimination many of us experience when it comes to our mental health. We are a social movement that has helped to improve the nation's attitude towards mental health by over 12% in the last 10 years.

We do this in many ways - through our 50+ Community Hubs, our 1000+ pledged employers and by working with over half the secondary schools in England.

Our Annual Time to Talk Day happens on the first Thursday in February and get's the nation talking. Our Ask Twice campaign helps us reach men and secondary school pupils by asking them to be in their mates corner.

Hello and thank you for visiting our page.

If you have made a donation we'd like to thank you for your generosity as well as your help and support.

Time to Change has been battling the Stigma and Discrimination surrounding mental health for over 10 years now and during that time we have seen attitudes change by nearly 10%......but we still have much to do.

Time to Change now works with over 1000 employers and approx 2000 secondary schools nationally as well as setting up over 60 local community hubs. Our last Time to Talk Day ( held annually on the first Tuesday of February) was the biggest yet. This is the day we get the nation talking about mental health. This year we reached more people than ever before and trended at number one on many social media platforms.

We are a campaign led by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness and funded by The Department of Health, Comic Relief and The Big Lottery Fund but have a funding gap of nearly 2 Million UK Pounds.

We are due to run until 2021 and need to raise the additional funds if we are to continue to campaign as effectively as we do.

Your donation has been put towards the deficit and will go towards helping us continue to train our Community Champions, Workplace Champions and Young Champions who all speak out about mental health in their environments.

We know that, of the 1 in 4 of us who experience poor mental health, 60% of us will say the Stigma and Discrimination we experience because of it is as bad if not worse than being unwell.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and, once again, if you have donated.....please accept our gratitude and best wishes.

From everyone at Time to Change.
