Spotted in Haymarket Shopping Centre

Time to Change

Life Links were invited to host an information stand in the Haymarket shopping centre on Friday 17 May, for Mental Health Awareness Week. Our Recovery Workers were present alongside Time to Change campaigners from Leicester City Council.

The aim of the day’s information stand was to get the conversation going around mental health, present our service, and to offer support to shoppers passing by. Conversations have flown all day around the work that we do, and people are really keen to chat!

Recovery Worker Amelia said:

It was great working beside Time to Change, and to raise awareness and challenge the stigma surrounding mental health. It has been a really nice day!

Thanks to the Haymarket for hosting us!

Our mission is to work towards a society which values everyone with mental health problems. This is why we are proud local coordinators for the national anti-stigma campaign, ‘Time to Change’.
