Time to Talk Day

The next Time to Talk Day will be on Thursday 4 February 2016.

Join us and let’s get the nation talking about mental health to help end the misconceptions around it. 

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 to break the silence and end the stigma.

Talking about mental health doesn’t need to be difficult, and packs of materials to help you start your conversations will be available closer to the time.

In the meantime, you can sign up to our mailing list to keep up to date with all the latest news and plans. 

And take a look below at everything that happened this year. 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!
