Time to Talk Day 2024 is on Thursday 1st February. The day is all about bringing people and communities together to talk about mental health.
It’s not always easy to say how we really feel, but Time to Talk Day is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health. In the run up to and on the day, we encourage everyone – from individuals, community groups, workplaces, and schools – to have conversations about mental health.
This year’s theme, ‘What I really mean’, was shaped by the voices of lived experience participants in interviews and surveys conducted by Mind. The theme is shaped around the idea that we hide our true feelings behind automatic stock phrases.
Talking about mental health isn’t always easy, but a conversation has the power to change lives. Even a simple text message to a friend can start a conversation and make a difference.
There are lots of tips and ideas for how to start a conversation about mental health available for free by clicking the button below.
You can even try out Interactive Bingo or a True or False quiz. These are great ways to get people talking in your workplace, in community groups or even down the pub with your mates.Tips to Talk
