Time to Change discriminates

Harsh words, but as far as I and the community I live in are concerned it is true.

On their website they say:
“We aim to work with all sectors and communities to tackle a lingering taboo and one of the greatest social injustices.”

Their latest e mail bulletin says “Get Moving Week is Here” and:
If you aren’t organizing an event or haven’t found an event to attend yet go to http://www.time-to-change.org.uk/get-involved/whats-going-near-you to find out what’s happening near you.

Well, go there and type in ‘South Norfolk’ like I did - and what do you get:

“Sorry, no events found.”

From the setting up of Time to Change/Open Up I’ve been trying to point out to them they are neglecting rural areas and the needs of people with mental health problems in rural communities, many of which are different from those in urban communities. They take no notice and continue to discriminate in real terms.

I’ve given up with this organisation and removed them from friends of PPlog.

Well done Mike. Time to Change are discriminating in urban areas too as the 'usual suspects' behind the campaign don't pay much notice to anyone outside their own closed decision making circles.
