Time to Talk Day 2019 is fast approaching and is all about challenging social stereotypes to start a conversation about mental health – a problem that affects 1 in 4 of us throughout our lifetime! From Anxiety and Eating Problems, to PTSD and Postnatal Depression, everyone deserves to feel comfortable talking to someone, and just knowing that someone is there to talk to can make a world of difference.


Mental health problems are one of the leading causes of disability around the world, with 1 in 6 people suffering from mental health issues on a regular basis. The more we talk about mental health, the more the stereotypes surrounding mental health will break down, and the easier it is to encourage people who are suffering to talk about it and get the support that they need. So how can you help?

Time to Talk Day 2019

Time to Talk Day 2019 is on the 7th February this year and encourages everyone to have a conversation about mental health. There is a common misconception that you need to be an expert on mental health to be able to help – this simply isn’t true! Even if you haven’t experienced any mental health issues, there are loads of super helpful resources out there – just check out this list from the mental health charity Mind.org to get you started.
