Washington Mind is coordinating a Time to Change organic hub, hosted by Sunderland City Council and funded by Public Health. The hub covers Sunderland, Washington and the Coalfields.
About the hub
Improving the health and wellbeing of local communities as well as tackling stigma and discrimination is a strategic priority for all our partners; becoming a Time to Change Hub gives them the opportunity to achieve this.
Time to Change Hub partners demonstrate their commitment to:
- Putting people with personal experience of mental health problems at the heart of their work
- Embedding anti-stigma and discrimination work locally, whether that be schools, workplaces or other community settings
- Proactively campaigning to improve people’s attitudes and behaviors towards mental health
Sunderland’s Hub partners include
- Grace House
- City hospitals
- Sunderland People First
- University of Sunderland
- IMPACT North East
Partners work together to deliver their own anti-stigma campaigning activities. These support schools, workplaces and communities to take action.
