We want to create a society where everyone feels comfortable talking about mental health – whenever they like. If people feel able to do that, that’s great. Unfortunately, many people still don’t feel comfortable talking openly – fearing judgement from others. By asking everyone to talk about mental health at a shared moment in time – whether you have a mental health problem or not, we hope people will find it a positive experience that they will continue.
By choosing to talk about mental health we can bust myths and break down barriers and that is why we are dedicating Thursday 6th February to Time To Talk Day! This day is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives. We’re using the popular conversation game ‘would you rather?’ to bust myths, break down barriers and get everyone talking about mental health.
Join us and Choose talk, Change lives.
