The Times they are A-changin…

We’re getting calls and texts about the Time To Change ads, asking if we’ve seen them and what we think. Well we think they’re brilliant and they’re definitely getting people talking, which is what it’s all about. Thanks to charities like Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, who are heading up the Time to Change campaign and have been working in the mental health field for decades here in the UK, change really does seem to be afoot… Let’s keep it going!

If you aren’t in the UK or haven’t managed to catch any of the TV adverts yet, take a look and read about the stories behind them here:

Time To Change

We’ve borrowed Bob Dylan’s line so here’s a little picture of the great man together with Joan Baez, another amazing talent. With thanks to Wikimedia Creative Commons images – if you know who the photographer was/is, let us know!

Mental Wealth

We made some great new friends working on the last music fundraiser.

St Pauls Lifestyle inc OVERGROUND SOUND is a free, independent and ethical multi media magazine. They’ve been described as influential, exciting and vital for musicians. They support striving artists. They’re passionate about music and love comedy. And what’s more they have a refreshingly rational view about mental health and creativity. See what they have to say on their blog:

St Pauls Lifestyle: “We’d like 2013 to be the year that Mental Wealth becomes the slogan for mental illness.”

Right up our street so, guess what? We’re meeting up with the St Pauls Lifestyle team to plan a fundraising gig together and what’s more, we’re heading South to do it. Watch this space for more news!
