Time to Talk

1st February 2018 

It’s easy to think there’s no right place to talk about mental health. But the more we talk about it, the better life is for all of us.

Too many people with mental health problems are made to feel isolated, worthless and ashamed. Time to Talk Day is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.

Wherever you are – at home, at work or up the top of mountain! – have your conversation about mental health this Time to Talk Day.

Take part and download your resources here.
