Welcome to the Viewpoint Survey

If you have received an invite to participate in the survey and you would like more information, please click on the downloads tab above to find information relating to different aspects of the project.

The Viewpoint Survey is being carried out to record and measure the amount of stigma and discrimination faced by mental health service users.

Interviews are carried out over the telephone, at a time convenient to you, and are conducted by trained and experienced interviewers, most of whom have received mental health care themselves and all of whom are passionate about ending mental health discrimination.

You will be asked about your personal experiences in the last 12 months in different areas of your life.  See the section on “what will I be asked?” in the information pack for more details.

Time to Change is England's most ambitious programme to end the discrimination faced by people with mental health problems, and improve the nation's wellbeing. Mind and Rethink are leading the programme, funded £16m from the Department of Health and £4m from Comic Relief. The Viewpoint survey forms part of the evaluation of Time to Change and is run by the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College, London and The McPin Foundation. 

The Viewpoint Survey will form part of the evaluation for the Time to Change programme.
