Time to Change is a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health.

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are proud to be supporters of Time to Change and have commited to working to end the stigma of speaking about mental health problems.

Time to Change West Sussex is a hub which is being led by the local health and well-being board, in partnership with local authorities, Coastal West Sussex Mind, and other partners which includes Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust as the mental health service provider for the area.

Some of the aims of the hub, which is co-ordinated by Coastal West Sussex Mind, are: 

  • to actively promote Time to Change as an effective campaign, including promoting the signing of the 'employers pledge' to all employers in the local area
  • to be a central point of support and advice for all organisations that have an interest in developing and providing anti-stigma activities 
  • to record and co-ordinate the anti-stigma activities already happening across West Sussex and activities which are supported through the hub
  • to deliver a range of activities throughout the 12 month delivery period
