Time to Talk Day 2021 is taking place on Thursday 4 February. Choose to talk about mental health and help 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.
A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
It is recognised that the more conversations you have, the more myths can busted and barriers can be broken down, helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many people with mental health problems are made to feel.
Time to Talk Day is the day that the nation will be talking about mental health but it needs to happen everyday as it does not go away for the other 364 days of the year. This year’s designated day might look a little different, but at times like this open conversations about mental health are more important than ever.
We know that talking about mental health can feel awkward, but it doesn’t have to be, we need everyone to start the conversation on this “Time to Talk day 2021” and by doing so we can all help to put an end mental health stigma.
