Charities from across Swindon are coming together on Thursday 2nd February to hold Swindon’s biggest conversation.
Time to Talk Day aims to get as many people as possible talking about mental health. Events across Swindon will encourage people to talk, listen and change lives.
The day is being coordinated by Swindon Wellbeing, a network of organisations focussed on helping people with their mental health and wellbeing.
People can struggle to find the right time or place to talk about mental health so Time to Change is asking people to have a conversation wherever they are – at home, at school, or even at the top of a mountain.
1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year, but many of us are too afraid to talk about it. Starting a conversation about mental health might seem daunting but simply sending a text, checking in on a friend or sharing something on social media can break the ice.
Swindon Wellbeing can be contacted via their website www.swindon-wellbeing.org or Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.
