An Update from Time to Change – 5 September 2019

Time to Change

Global awareness days like World Suicide Prevention Day (Tuesday 10 September) and World Mental Health Day (Thursday 10 October) are a great opportunity for us all to start conversations and change attitudes around mental health.

If you’re not sure where to get started, read on to discover our five ways to change attitudes.

Throughout October we’ll be promoting our Ask Twice campaign, which encourages everyone to find out how their friends, family and colleagues really are by asking ‘how are you?’ twice. Watch our short campaign film below and help us spread the message.


 

Sometimes we say we’re fine when we’re not.

That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to ask twice, to find out how your friends, family and colleagues really are. It sounds simple, but being there for someone can make a huge difference.
