Next week, ‘Time to Change’ will be celebrating the work of Time to Change Champions’. There will be a lot of ‘champions’ stories’ posted on Facebook, Twitter, etc, so keep an eye out for them.
I am proud to have been a champion, which I signed up for a couple of years ago. It was in connection with some of the video work I did with ‘Brolly Good Show’ PSS’s drama group from the Umbrella Centre.
It provides a great opportunity to share experiences and coping strategies surrounding mental health issues, in a social climate where funding is being slashed for support groups, alongside a process of keeping those of us with mental illness marginalized and stigmatized.

They have been an inspiration for me, and for many others.
