It’s Time to Talk Day on Thursday 7 February 2019. However you do it, make 7 February the time to talk about mental health.
Around 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem this year yet the shame and silence can be as bad as the mental health problem itself. Your attitude to mental health could change someone’s life.
British Orienteering is supporting Time to Talk Day today (Thursday 7 February 2019) – a day when everyone is encouraged to have conversations about mental health.
When one in four of us experience a mental health problem in any given year it’s important that we start the conversation.
This year the focus is on finding the right ingredients for a mental health conversation.
Time to Talk Day is run by Time to Change to help spread the word that anywhere can be the right place to talk about mental health – including at work.
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.
British Orienteering is backing again this year's Time to Talk Day to support and help change the way we all think and act about mental health problems. That’s why we are taking part in #timetotalk Day – because we should all be able to talk about mental health just as easily as we talk about the sport of Orienteering.
Time to Change is focusing on changing how we all think and act about mental health.
