New Time to Change Champions Fund available for mental health activities in Bristol

Time to Change

The Community Access Support Service is part of several organisations leading on a new fund to tackle mental health stigma in Bristol. The fund, which is available to individuals and groups city-wide, allows people to claim up to £500 towards running a mental health-related activity or event.

The premise of the fund is to gather people with lived experience of mental health issues to share knowledge with others who may have a limited understanding. Being able to share information through collaborative activities and events can lead to shifts in perception as people begin to reassess their attitudes towards mental health.

Activities funded through previous funds include art exhibitions, pop-up shops and music events. Time to Change is also offering free training to anyone wishing to apply for the fund.

Applications for the fund are currently being processed through Wellspring Healthy Living Centre and details can be found on their website. Applicants must sign up as Time to Change Champions before applying for the fund and all activities must take place before the end of February 2016.
