About Waltham Forest Time To Talk

Waltham Forest Time To Talk (previously Time to Change) has been operating since March 2018 and supports individuals to challenge the stigma and discrimination that still exists in mental health. For more information please email us  at and you can sign up for our newsletter here.

Join Us In Ending the Stigma of Mental Ill Health

We would love to hear from anyone with a lived experience of mental ill health, or someone who cares for someone mentally unwell or who feels passionate about changing the way people view those who experience mental illness. 

Evidence shows that one of the most powerful ways to challenge stigma and discrimination is through lived experience and sharing experiences with others. 


These conversations help challenge the misconceptions and negative stereotypes around mental health.  Conversations can take place anywhere but where they have proved most successful is through engaging the public in an activity, or an event or workshop.

Champions have successfully delivered a range of activities for members of the local community including, Hearing Voices Group LoungeThe Living Library and Who are 1 in 4?

“Motherly Love has made me feel less alone in my parenting journey. The group is so supportive and makes everyone feel welcome. Some weeks I don’t feel like talking about what’s going on for me and having the company of other people going through similar things is invaluable. It also helps build my confidence when I hear other people going through challenges I know I’ve overcome and being able to support others. The facilitators are amazing and are great at making everyone feel included. I always feel cared for and valued in a way I don’t when talking to some professionals. I am really grateful to be part of the group.”
