Time to Change Young Champion


Since 2011, Time to Change (TTC)’s children and young people’s programme has been working to improve the knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of young people and families around mental health. Time to Change is committed to continuing to create a culture where discrimination on the grounds of mental health problems is a thing of the past. By sharing your experiences of mental health problems with your friends, family, in blogs, on social media, in schools and in the media you will play a key role in helping to improve the attitudes and behaviour of the public.
