Time to Change, the mental health anti-stigma campaign, has launched a training pack in partnership with NHS England, to help reduce the stigma and discrimination experienced by people when using mental health services. One in three people report stigma and discrimination when using mental health services, despite positive changes in attitudes towards people with mental health problems in some areas.
Time to Change worked with mental health professionals, practitioners and people using services to develop new training materials and tools to specifically encourage open dialogue amongst mental health teams about the positive changes that they can make to improve their culture and practice. The pack is aimed at mental health NHS trusts and includes a film and supporting materials, to be used as part of staff supervisions and team meetings.
