Time to Talk Day mental health event 2015


undefinedSometimes the isolation and stigma around a mental health issue can feel worse than the issue itself. That's why we all need to talk. Jane Knight (pictured), our Diocesan Head of Counselling, is encouraging all parishes to get involved in Time to Talk Day coming up on Thursday 5 February.

The idea is that we all take five minutes to have a conversation about mental health with a friend or colleague.

Talking about mental health doesn’t need to be difficult and can make a big difference. Time to Talk Day is a project organised with the Time to Change organisation, which challenges mental health stigma and discrimination across England.

Jane is asking parishes and individuals to take part and get talking.

The Time to Change website has lots of tips and free resources to help start conversations.
