Time to Talk Day

Thank you!

Thank you for being part of Time to Talk Day 2015 by taking 5 minutes out of your day to have a conversation about mental health.

On 5 February 2015 we asked everyone to take 5 minutes to have a conversation about mental health. People logged their 5 minutes to help us reach 24 hours worth of conversation, but together we actually had enough 5 minute conversations to fill 22 days and 1 hour and 5 minutes!   Take a look at the counter

About Time to Talk Day

Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people every year, yet too often people are afraid to talk about their experiences because they fear it will affect their jobs or relationships. That’s not right and it’s why we need your help today to break the silence and end the stigma.

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health, so you don’t need to be an expert to have a conversation. On Time to Talk Day thousands of you took 5 minutes with a friend to find out how they’re doing, viewed and shared our film or had a conversation online.
