Take the mental health anti-stigma pledge

The Department of Health has become the first department in Whitehall to sign up to a pledge to combat stigma around mental health, organised by the Time to Change campaign.

To coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10 October 2012, the Department of Health renewed its commitment to give mental health equal priority with physical health.

NHS and local authority chief executives and a wide range of organisations are being asked to sign up to the pledge and review the resources available for implementation.
