Attitudes to mental health changing ‘for the better’

Sue Baker, director of the Time to Change programme, which is tackling the stigma around mental health problems, said:


“Attitudes towards mental health issues are finally beginning to move in the right direction. Deep-seated prejudices are starting to shift and it’s a further sign that we are heading towards a tipping point in England and that there is a real appetite for change.Nearly nine out of 10 people with mental health problems have been affected by stigma and discrimination, with two thirds saying they have stopped doing things because of this.”
