- Tyne Tees
A pop-up village designed to demystify mental health issues and end the stigma surrounding the condition has opened in Newcastle city centre. The Mental Health North East campaign is part of 'Time To Change', a national drive based around mental health discrimination.
In Newcastle, the campaign is working with Launchpad, Mental Health North East and other regional organisations. Some 80 volunteers are on site with first-hand experience of mental health issues to chat to visitors.
