Here is a selection of videos by our Time to Change champions exploring mental health
Clinton Rogers talks about the importance of looking after our mental health at this difficult time. He talks about support available and highlights ‘Time to Talk’ day Thursday 4 February where we are all being encouraged to check in on family friends and colleagues. A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
Artist and Time to Change Champion Charlie Mcfarley painted a graffiti mural in the Minehead EYE skatepark, as a cheery reminder to look after our mental as well as our physical health. Charlie created the character ‘Brian the Brain’ who can be seen exercising! He said “When I am painting all my anxieties disappear and I am in the moment. Positive mental health is really important to Minehead EYE and we want people to know that’s is more than OK to talk about it. I joined with the Time to Change campaign because Stigma and discrimination still exist and it can stop us talking! I hope we can help change this everywhere eventually , but lets start here at the EYE!”
The future of mental health with 19-year old, Haleem Clift, made with the Time to change campaign.
Having struggled with his own mental health, Haleem wanted to explore the subject of mental health as a whole, to find out where we are with the topic and what more needs to be done.
He interviews the general public as well as influential figures in this field.
A great watch for anyone who’s experienced difficulties with their mental health, or for anyone who is remotely interested in the subject.
