Time to Change Wales Champions are people with experience of mental health problems who tell their stories, deliver presentations and anti-stigma training at community groups, organisations and places of employment around Wales.
If you have experience of mental health problems and would like to help end stigma and discrimination, we can offer training to support you to talk about your experiences either informally, with family and friends, or as formal presentations. The first step is to sign up as a Time to Change Wales Champion, so we can send you the information you need.
If you’d like one of our Champions to visit your organisation to talk to staff or volunteers, please contact us
“As a Time to Change Wales Champion, I give presentations to small groups but also to large groups of people to attempt to challenge people's views around mental health stigma and discrimination. As time has gone on, I have grown in confidence. I still get nervous, but I have developed strategies for harnessing the wobbles and using them in my presentation. At my last one, which was my biggest audience yet, I loved the fact that I had the full attention of the listeners.” Shelley, TTCW Champion
