Time to Change Kingston was the second hub in London to be awarded funding from national Time to Change in 2019, hosted by the Royal Borough of Kingston Council and coordinated by Healthwatch Kingston.
The Hub’s role is to get people in Kingston to talk about mental health, and change the way people act and think about mental health. This could be a chat over coffee, a talk, a music event or an open day.
The hub is always looking for champions; people with lived experience of mental health who want to change behaviour and attitudes towards mental health in a more positive way. Champions will receive training and support so they can talk about mental health and help promote the Hub’s work. To find out what a champion does, click here.
