Positive practice in mental health services

A new training pack has been launched to help reduce the stigma and discrimination sometimes experienced by people when using mental health services.

NHS England has worked with Time To Change, England’s biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination, to develop and fund a project which aims to better understand the dynamics of relationships between people who use services and NHS professionals. Insight from research, focus groups and individual interviews, demonstrated that a high number of people using mental health services felt they experienced stigma and discrimination.

The resulting training pack focuses on changes that can improve both team culture and working practices.
