Making Space signs pledge to end mental health stigma

Making Space is proud to announce that we have now joined the growing number of companies committing to end the stigma and discrimination against people with experience of mental health problems, by signing a pledge with Time to Change, which is a programme run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.

The signing ceremony took place at our Involvement Conference, with Deb Smith, Volunteer and Service user and Sylvia Kelly, Chair of our Board of Trustees signing the Time to Change pledge on behalf of Making Space.

Sylvia Kelly, Chair of the Board of Trustees, said: “We are pleased to have joined forces with Time to Change and are confident that together we can stamp out stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health. We are passionate about getting people to talk about mental health, and develop new and innovative ways of creating a more mentally healthy work environment.
