Time to Talk Day

Let’s start a conversation about mental health

We’re supporting Time to Talk Day on Thursday 6 February, which is all about getting us talking about mental health. This day is a great opportunity for everyone to have a conversation about mental health – whether that’s texting a friend, chatting to a colleague at lunchtime or organising an event. Talking about mental health can feel awkward, but it doesn't have to be and you don’t need to have all the answers, just listening can make a big difference. Find out more about how you can start a conversation around mental health and the support here in Southampton.
