Choose talk, change lives.
Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet too many people are made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless because of this. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.
On Time to Talk Day we want everyone to have a conversation about mental health – whether that’s texting a friend, chatting to a colleague or organising an event. By doing so, we can change the way people think, talk and act about mental health problems. We want to make stigma and discrimination a thing of the past.
The more we talk, the more we can break down barriers and shatter myths - helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us feel when experiencing a mental health problem. Talking has the power to change lives.
