With one in four people affected by mental health problems, NHS St Helens CCG are encouraging people to make 7th February the #timetotalk about mental health
Mental health problems affect one in four of us yet people are still afraid to talk about it. For people with mental health problems not being able to talk about it can be one of the worst parts of the illness. So by getting people talking about mental health we can break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all.
Since 'Time To Talk Day' first launched in 2014, it has sparked millions of conversations in schools, homes, workplaces, in the media and online.
This means Time to Talk Day is the perfect opportunity to get your workplace/school/community/family/friends talking about mental health.
Too many people with mental health problems are made to feel isolated, worthless and ashamed. 'Time to Talk Day' is a chance for us all to be more open and honest, and help people speak up about their mental health problems.
Join in the conversation on Twitter with #TimeToTalk.
