Time to Change’s ‘Time to Talk Day’ is right around the corner and this year will take place on Thursday 6th February.
With one in four of us experiencing a mental health problem in any given year, there has never been a better time to get involved in Time to Talk Day.
The more conversations we have about mental health, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down – helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us feel when experiencing a mental health problem.
The day provides an opportunity for you to add to the wider conversation that will be occurring on social media, television and elsewhere.
This Time to Talk Day, Time to Change are encouraging everyone to consider how you can create awareness raising opportunities and raising others’ overall level of understanding of mental health.
Games, social events and activities can be fantastic opportunities to start up a mental health conversation in a way that doesn’t appear intimidating or awkward.

Time to Change is the first national campaign to end the stigma and discrimination faced by people with mental health problems and in Wales is led by leading mental health charities Hafal and MIND Cymru. For more information, visit: https://www.timetochangewales.org.uk/en
