Talking about mental health
Today is Time to Talk Day – a day when everyone is encouraged to have a conversation about mental health. At Advance, we know that it benefits all of us to talk about mental health, and we want to encourage everyone to participate in the conversation; be it as a listener or a sharer. Everyone has some experience of mental health, and talking about it can help those who are struggling feel less alone.
Time to Talk Day is run by Time to Change to help spread the word that there are lots of different ways to have a conversation about mental health - and you don't have to be an expert to talk.
Time to Change is England's biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination and is run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.
