Time to Talk Day 2021

On Thursday 4 February 2021 we need your help to get your workplace talking about mental health. 

This Time to Talk Day we’re focusing on the power of small – because a small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference. 

The coronavirus pandemic means that this Time to Talk Day might look a little different. You might not be able to get involved in the way that you usually would, but at times like this open conversations about mental health are more important than ever.

Whether you’re able to bring people together in person, online or by phone, we have lots of resources, tools and tips to help you get your colleagues talking.

Reaching Out

Blue Light Survey

Our emergency services have always had an extremely challenging job, but this year it has been even harder.

Mind want to ensure that Blue Light staff get the support they need both now and into the future. To do this, we want to hear about current experiences and how the coronavirus pandemic may have affected the mental health of staff & volunteers working in emergency services in England and Wales.

If you work in the emergency services, you can share your views & take part in the survey now, and if you have friends or family working in the services we’d greatly appreciate your sharing this link.
