Time to Talk Day – How to get involved
A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
Time to Talk Day is a chance for thousands of us – communities, schools and workplaces– to join together on one day to tackle the silence and the stigma that still surrounds mental health.
The more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us with mental health problems are made to feel.
Here’s how to get involved this year:
- Have a conversation about mental health – On February 4th take time to have a conversation about mental health. Tips to get your conversations started can be found here
- Take part in Time to Talk Day’s Virtual Festival – Over February 3rd and 4th, Time to Change is hosting a day of online activities that anyone can join from home
At times like this, open conversations about mental health are more important than ever. You don’t have to wait until Time to Talk Day to check in with a friend or seek out support.
