Mind in Brighton and Hove
Mind in Brighton and Hove exists to empower and support people who have experience of mental health issues living in Brighton and Hove and West Sussex. We provide a range of services which provide support and help to enable people to make choices about the services they use and treatment they receive. This include advice and information, advocacy and service user led projects.
We have recently been given funding from Time to Change for a new project called Dispelling Mental Health Myths in the Workplace. This project aims to start conversations with employers and employees of local businesses about mental health with the aim of dispelling mental health myths.
Time to Change is England's biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination. Part of this work is a £2.7m grants scheme to fund grassroots projects, led by people with mental health problems, that will engage communities in meaningful conversations about mental health. The programme aims to change behaviours, not just attitudes. For more information about Time to Change visit their website: www.time-to-change.org.uk. For more information on how to take part in the project either as a workplace or a volunteer, please contact the project coordinator Jodie Wallis at [email protected] or via telephone.
