#TimeToTalkDay – talk about mental health and help change lives.
28 January 2021
It's hard enough to experience mental health problems, without having to face the judgement, shame and isolation that often surrounds them. That's why we want to end mental health discrimination.
Time to Talk Day 2021 is taking place on Thursday 4 February.
Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet too many people are made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless because of this. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.
A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
We know that the more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, helping to end the 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.
The ABTT are hosting a seminar:
On Thursday 4th February at 3pm you can join the ABTT with Mental Health First Aid Trainer Pat O Toole who will be talking about how you can apply mental health first aid training into the work place effectively. We will also be joined by Mig Burgess who is a lifelong mental health patient and advocate for awareness. She will bring her perspective as a mental health sufferer who has used Mental Health First Aiders’ and other mental health provisions as a patient.
