Time to Talk Day is here! Everywhere across the country – in homes, schools and offices – people are making space in their day to talk about mental health.
Are you taking part too? If you’re not sure how to get involved today, don’t worry – we’ve got some great ideas on how you can start that conversation today. There’s still time to talk, to listen, to change lives.
Tea and talk
Make space in your day to catch up with a friend or colleague over a cuppa. Just carving out some time to check in with someone can be all the space they need to open up.
You can check out our conversation tips to help get the ball rolling.
It’s easy to get involved in Time to Talk Day using just your phone! Make a post on social media talking about what the day is and why you’re taking part.
We’ve even got some pieces you can download and share, too. Just make sure to use the hashtag #TimetoTalk
Do something special
Another great thing about Time To Talk Day is that you can do anything you want!
Before, we’ve seen people share poems, bake cakes for neighbours, or just reach out to someone they haven’t spoken to in years.
Start a conversation about mental health in a way that’s really ‘you’!
Whatever you do today, remember that Time To Talk Day isn’t the end – it’s just the beginning. Today is the time to start those conversations, and tomorrow is the time to keep them going.
So – how will you keep things going tomorrow?
