Time to Change Wales Champions are volunteers with lived experience of mental health problems who are at the heart of the Time to Change Wales campaign, challenging stigma in their own communities, campaigning in the media and sharing their experiences of living with mental health problems.
Signing up as a Champion is your first step if you’d like to write a blog for this website, get involved with a community project, help out with events, undertake training to share your story with employers and community groups. Some Champions also volunteer at our offices, contribute to press and media stories or help the campaign online. In fact, if you’ve got other ideas or ways you would like to help end stigma, we’d love to hear from you.
If you’re aged 18-30 with lived experience of mental health problems you can also train to become one of our Young Champions. As well as being involved with the Time to Change Wales campaign in all the usual ways, you’ll also have the chance to share your story with young people wherever they are – whether that’s at a school, university, youth group or young people’s event – and help put an end to stigma and discrimination.
