On this Time to Talk Day 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.

The more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, all help to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many people with mental health problems are made to feel.

A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.

Time to Talk day this year might look a little different, but at times like this open conversations about mental health are more important than ever. Together we can end mental health stigma.
