Too many people with mental health problems are made to feel isolated, worthless and ashamed. Having conversations about mental health can break down barriers. It’s Time to Talk Day on Thursday 7 February 2019. However you do it, make 7 February the #timetotalk about mental health.
Mental health problems affect one in four of us yet people are still afraid to talk about it. For people with mental health problems not being able to talk about it can be one of the worst parts of the illness. So by getting people talking about mental health we can break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all.
Since Time To Talk Day first launched in 2014, it has sparked millions of conversations in schools, homes, workplaces, in the media and online.
This means Time to Talk Day is the perfect opportunity to get your workplace/school/community talking about mental health.
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.
