Time to Talk Day

Time to Talk Day is a mental health awareness day on 3rd February. Mental health organizations across the UK and Ireland use this day to shine a light on conversations around mental health and combat the judgment and shame that surrounds it. 

As the name suggests, the day is used to start conversations between family, friends, and colleagues about mental health and create an environment where we all support each other. The goal is to make everyone feel comfortable talking about mental health whenever they need to and reduce the stigma that is often attached to these types of conversations. Time to Talk Day is supposed to kick off this change.

The Importance of Talking to Each Other

Everyone's experience of mental health is different across the millions of communities around the world. Talking about problems to friends and family can be a great source of wellbeing. Having a support system when things aren't going so well is crucial for maintaining good mental health.

Time to Talk Day is a day to pause and rethink mental illness. Although the many mental health awareness campaigns that have sprung up in recent years have gradually improved the situation, there's still a long way to go until the stigma around mental illnesses is gone.
