Time to Talk Day Thursday 4th February
Tackling mental health stigma and discrimination does not have to be scary or overwhelming. It can start with a small act of asking how someone is and reaching out!
Small conversations make a big difference! That is the message and theme of this year’s time to talk day (Thursday 4th February). This day is run by https://www.time-to-change.org.uk/
We our supporting this day in our college so please let us know how you got on so. We want to inspire more people to talk about mental health and make it normal and okay. A great example of this have been the Discover 2020 project our volunteers (Tony, Gary and Michael) have been involved in. They have interviewed people who have talked about their experiences of lockdown and how this has affected their mental health and wellbeing. Well worth a listen!
