Time To Change
At the start of 2017 I signed up to become a Champion for Time To Change, a Mental Health charity registered in England. I found out about TTC when I was receiving treatment via MIND in my local town.
Time to Change Champions are people with lived experience of mental health problems who campaign to end mental health discrimination in their communities. The Champions network is an opportunity to meet like minded people and campaign together to change attitudes and behaviour.
Over the coming months and years I will offer my knowledge of the things I’ve experienced myself, through advocacy and raising awareness via my media channels and personal blog.
I’m hoping to run the London Marathon in 2018 as a charity runner for Time To Change, however this is early days yet and I’m not officially announcing it until everything is secured and in place, so let’s just say watch this space!
In the meantime please check out the Time To Change website to find out more about the charity and read other stories about how TTC help the community and raise awareness of the issues and stigmas that people with Mental Health suffer in our society.
More on this very soon. Coolio
