Time to Talk Day 1st February 2018
Time to talk day – let’s end mental health discrimination
ME is not a mental health condition, but the struggle to cope with a wide array of debilitating symptoms combined with the difficulties finding help and support can lead to psychological stresses for some.
Some people with ME have taken their own lives when the pressure becomes too much.
The Time to Change campaign tells us around 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem this year yet the shame and silence can be as bad as the mental health problem itself. Your attitude to mental health could change someone’s life.
It’s easy to think there’s no right place to talk about mental health but the more we talk about it, the better life is for all of us.
Too many people with mental health problems are made to feel isolated, worthless and ashamed.
Time to Talk Day is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.
Wherever you are – at home, at work or up the top of a mountain! – have your conversation about mental health this Time to Talk Day.
