Time To Talk Day is an annual national event, lead by Time to Change. Time to Change is a national campaign against mental health stigma, and Time to Talk Day is all about making time to talk about mental health.
Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it – talking about mental health problems and sharing real life stories helps to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems.
This year, Time to Talk Day takes place on Thursday 6th February.
In Bristol, there’s a lot going on! Check out this guide, compiled by the Bristol Time to Change Hub, detailing what’s happening. From pub quizzes to coffee mornings, bowling competitions to poetry nights, there’s bound to be something going on near you.
If you’re posting to social media, we’ll be using two hashtags; #TimeToTalk and #TTCBristol.
Has Time to Talk Day inspired you to get more involved in campaigning against mental health stigma? Maybe you’ve had an idea for an event or activity that you would like to run? Watch out for a special announcement coming on Time to Talk day, which will explain how we can help you make that idea a reality.
Some Time to Talk events are organised by the Bristol Time to Change Hub. The Bristol Hub are a group of organisations who have come together to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination in the city of Bristol.
These organisations are the Bristol Independent Mental Health Network (a branch of the Independent Mental Health Network, a membership-lead organisation for those with lived experience of mental health), Rethink (Bristol), Wellbeans Initiative, Community Access Support Service (CASS) Bristol, and Bristol City Council.
