The charitably funded Time to Change campaign was launched in January 2009 aiming to reduce discrimination experienced by those with experience of mental illness by 5% by 2012. The author discusses whether this campaign is having any impact. The campaign has 35 projects in all, including local community projects, a national high-profile campaign, a mass-participation physical activity week, legal test cases, training for student doctors and teachers, and a network of grassroots activists combating discrimination. Research recently published by the Institute of Psychiatry showed that the overall level of discrimination reported by people who experience a mental health problem has dropped by 4% in the past 12 months. Discrimination faced when searching for a job had decreased by 9% and there was a 6% reduction in the number of people who reported losing their job due to a mental health problem. In addition findings from the Department of Health’s study, Attitudes to Mental Illness 2010, showed a 2.2% improvement in public attitudes from 2008 to 2010, with a significant 1.3% improvement in attitudes from 2009 to 2010, when the start of the Time to Change campaign began. The findings to date are considered encouraging.
