Thursday the 4th February is Time to Talk Day and the focus this year is on the power of small. Having a conversation about mental health; whether it’s a quick text to a friend, a virtual coffee morning with colleagues, or a walk with someone you live with; has the power to make a big difference.
“Time to Talk Day gave me the opportunity to talk openly about mental health and attempt to break the stigma. Time to Talk Day means a lot to me as I really do hope one-day mental health won’t have a horrible stigma to it”.
What is Time to Talk Day?
- 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year.
- It’s a chance for all of us to open up to mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.
- A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
