Time to Change in Leeds was launched on Thursday 25th June 2009. As part of the national Time to Change campaign the launch event challenged people to end discrimination and stamp out stigma. Campaigners demonstrated the 'weight' that mental health related illnesses can hold over people with a six-foot high boulder. The Time to Change in Leeds campaign aims to challenge the stigma that surrounds mental health and raise awareness of mental illness in the workplace.
We would like to encourage as many people in Leeds to become involved in the project as possible. The more support we have to tackle one of the nation's last lingering taboos, the better.
There will be a number of Time to Change events taking place in Leeds over the coming months.
Leeds United were involved in our Get Moving event on Tuesday 6th October and the Time to Change Roadshow came to Leeds on Thursday 8th October.
If you would like to know more about the plans for Time to Change in Leeds or are interested in getting involved please contact our Communications team on (0113) 305 5976 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
