Mental ill health is an issue which, directly and indirectly, affects many in our society. Yet, people facing these challenges continue to experience serious levels of health inequality, stigmatisation and discrimination.
Change Your Mind’s campaigning work is dedicated to tackling stigma and discrimination around mental health. Our campaigning work focuses on raising awareness of issues relevant to mental ill health.
