Description

Time to Change Logo


Bristol - help shape the future of Time to Change! Time to Change is a growing social movement working to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems.

We are running a focus group to discuss and explore the day-to-day experiences and priorities of those of us with lived experience of mental health problems, in order to help Time to Change to plan the activities of the campaign for the next few years. The informal discussion should take around 1.5 to 2 hours, and in return for coming along and sharing your views, we will pay each participant £25 plus travel expenses up to £15. This is a great opportunity to influence the work of a national mental health campaign!


FAQs

I haven't had a mental health diagnosis from a doctor, but I'm pretty sure I've had mental health problems. Can I take part?

If you identify as having had a mental health problem then yes you can take part, you don’t need to have had a formal diagnosis.


Do I have to be a Time to Change Champion to take part?

No, the only requirement is having your own personal experience of mental health problems.


Do I need to know all about Time to Change to take part?

No, although it would be helpful to be aware of the campaign. The discussion topics will be quite broad and will centre around mental health-related subjects.


Will my answers be confidential?

We may use direct quotations in the presentation of our research. However, we will never print or share any names of participants, or any information which could identify you. The discussion will be recorded, but purely for the purposes of compiling the results. The recordings will be held securely and never shared publicly, and will be destroyed after a limited time.


How is it going to influence the work of Time to Change?

Time to Change runs in "Phases" of several years. Whilst Time to Change will always be about ending negative attitudes towards mental health, each Phase has different target audiences, focuses, and priorities so we can make sure we end ALL mental health stigma and discrimination. These focus groups are part of a wider consultation to decide what Phase 4 (from 2021) will look like.
