Time to talk day 2021
Thursday 4 February is Time to Talk Day, a day when everyone is encouraged to talk about mental health. The more conversations we have, the more barriers we can break down, helping to end the stigma that many people can feel about mental health problems. This is important now, more than ever.

Time to talk day 2021: check in on your friends and family.
The power of small

A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.

We know that the more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us with mental health problems are made to feel.

Time to Talk Day is the day that we get the nation talking about mental health. This year’s event might look a little different, but at times like this open conversations about mental health are more important than ever.

We need your help to start the conversation this Time to Talk Day – together we can end mental health stigma.

What can I do to help?

Start a conversation.

On average, us humans have roughly 27 conversations per day. Why not make one of those about mental health with a friend or loved one? It may not be much to you, but to others it could be the catalyst they need to discuss their feelings, or reach out for further help.

Why not try these bingo cards, created by the 'time to change' charity, to help you start one of these conversations? Find an example below, and download your own which you can virtually check-off too!
