Leeds is one of the first Time to Change hubs in England, a new partnership of local organisations and mental health champions committed to improving local attitudes and behaviours towards people experiencing mental health problems.
Time to Change Leeds is led by the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Board and is a partnership between Space2, Leeds City Council, Leeds Mind (and Mindful Employer), Touchstone and West Yorkshire Police, as well as local Time to Change champions and regional co-ordinators.
The Time to Change Leeds Hub believe that people with their own experience of mental health problems (also known as lived experience) should be leading activity around combating stigma and discrimination experienced by those with mental health problems.
If you are passionate about ending mental health stigma, and would like to be involved in the Hub, you can find out more and sign up to be a Champion at www.time-to-change.org.uk/champions
