We’ve put together some suggested activities to kick-start your thinking. Every activity, no matter how big or small it may seem, contributes to our collective goal of tackling mental health stigma.
If you're running an event, we have lots of ideas for activities.
Tweet using #TimetoTalk, blog or post on Facebook. Use of social media is an individual choice and will not always be appropriate. Please ensure you consult and are mindful of your employer’s policy on social media and seek permission where necessary.
Distribute materials developed by the Time to Change campaign. Download and create your own material using our online tool.
Think about how you could use your existing communications channels to promote Time to Change messages, for example, staff intranets, newsletters, screensavers, etc.
Provide links to organisations that can provide support.
Share your personal experiences with your colleagues
If you don’t have personal experience of mental health problems give a talk on the importance of changing the way we think and act about mental health.
Run a workplace workshop
To help you create workplaces that are conducive to mental health and wellbeing, where stigma and discrimination around mental health has no place, we have filmed four workshops on an Introduction to Mindfulness, Emotional Resilience, Five Ways to Wellbeing and Starting the Conversation.
