Time to Talk Day will take place on Thursday 4 February 2016. The aim is to get as many people as possible across England talking about mental health.
By joining together on one day, we can break the silence that often surrounds mental health, and show that talking about this once-taboo issue doesn’t need to be difficult.
Bring Time to Talk Day to your workplace and help get the nation talking about mental health.
- Order leaflets, postcards and postcards to spread the word amongst your colleagues: do a desk drop, put them in the kitchen, bathrooms and other communal areas.
- Include an article about Time to Talk Day on your intranet.
- Host a lunch and learn on mental health. Use videos from the Time to Change YouTube channel and invite guest speakers with lived experience.
- Take a look at our series of Time to Change workshops - these have been designed for use both within and outside of the workplace. There are four workshops in total, and each workshop has a downloadable guidance document.
- Help challenge workplace discrimination – our employment resources are here to help you understand your rights as an employee and to help managers and HR understand more about mental health in the workplace.
- Send a colleague an e-card to let them know you are thinking of them.
- Read case studies from the University of the West of England and We Care & Repair to get inspiration.
Remember talking about mental health doesn't need to be difficult.
