Time to Talk Day is on 1st February. Its run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, in partnership with the Co-op. For more details click here.
The day is about creating supportive communities by having conversations with family, friends, or colleagues about mental health. We all have mental health. By talking about it, we can support ourselves and others.
The more conversations we have about mental health the more barriers we can break down and the closer we’ll come to ending mental health stigma and discrimination. Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet it can lead to many people feeling isolated, ashamed and worthless. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to be more open about mental health, to talk, to listen, to improve lives. Every conversation brings us a step closer to ending the feelings that too many of us experience. Poor mental health can affect anyone, of any age, gender or background. Starting a conversation with someone around their or your own mental health can feel uncomfortable. You may be worried that you will say the wrong thing but remember saying nothing is far worse. You may have
concerns about how others are coping with the current situation.
