The information and training sessions for groups are flexible and can last between 20 – 90 minutes. Audiences will meet our Time to Change Champions, view a specially commissioned film on mental health stigma and have the opportunity to discuss issues raised by the film with those who have a lived experience of stigma and discrimination.
