The Stand Up Kid

Watch The Stand Up Kid video designed & created by Time to Change to help stamp out the stigma faced by young people affected by mental health problems.

The Stand Up Kid was created alongside research which showed that nearly one in ten young people in the West Midlands thought that classmates with a mental health problem should not be at their school. The same number of young people also felt that they would stop being friends with someone if they had a mental health problem.

Time to Change also found that 9 out of 10 young people affected by mental health issues had also been affected by mental health stigma & experienced negative treatment as a result of this stigma.

If you or someone you know is suffering from mental health issues or the stigma surrounding them please find support through Murray Hall, Time to Change or your GP.
