Tea & Talk is a fun and informal mental health awareness workshop that aims to challenge stigma and discrimination by getting people talking over tea and cakes.
People are given the opportunity to reflect on their own experience and to think about how it is in everyone’s interest to work together for mentally healthier communities.
Through personal pledges people demonstrate that they understand the value of conversation and relationship in supporting both their own and the mental health of others.
Tea & Talk is about cultural change and will motivate employers, educators and individuals to support, instead of manage people.Tea &Talk inspires people to not wait for change but to instigate it for themselves.
