Time to Talk Day – 4th February 2021

Time to Change is led by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. One the 4th February it is Time to Talk Day, the theme this year is ‘The Power of Small’. The Power of Small, A small conversation about mental health ha the power to make a big difference. We know that the more conversations we have, the more myths we are bust and barriers we can break down, helping to end 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.
