Change Your Mind mental health campaign

09 May 2016

Grants available to groups and individuals to run events and activities to address stigma.


Call out for Champions and organisations to tackle stigma around mental health.

Change Your Mind is Northern Ireland’s regional campaign to tackle stigma and discrimination around mental health. It is a joint programme run by Niamh (Northern Ireland Association for Mental Health) and Public Health Agency. We are funded by Comic Relief and work in partnership with a range of organisations and community networks across Northern Ireland.

We are a grassroots campaign shaped by the collaboration of communities, organisations and individuals who are championing the message against mental health stigma across society – a campaign for people driven by people.
