Thursday 6 February is Time to Talk Day – a day when everyone is encouraged to have a conversation about 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 feel when experiencing a mental health problem.
This year conversation is at the heart of the day as we use the popular game ‘Would you rather?’ to encourage more people to talk than ever before. If you’re not familiar with the game, don’t worry – by asking one of our ‘Would you rather?’ questions you’ll be able to start up a mental health conversation with strangers, neighbours, family, colleagues and friends.
Choosing to talk about mental health can make a big difference.
Whatever you do is up to you. It could be texting a friend to ask how they are, or leaving some See Me materials in a place where they will start conversations.
Pop into the Wellbeing Space on level 2 in the Library to pick up some of our See Me #TimeToTalk materials.
