We need more champions for our partnership meetings!

Time to Change partnership meetings - Champions help shape the content and delivery of the Time to Change West Sussex action plan. The action plan looks at how we can deliver events and activities across West Sussex to as many people as possible.

The more people can understand mental health experiences and the negative impact of stigma the more we can expect changes for the better.

Crawley: Wednesday 10 January 2018 2.00pm - 4.00pm
Chichester: Monday 5 March 2018 10.00am -12.00pm
