Take 5 on Time to Talk Day

Published: 30/01/2015

Thursday 5 February 2015 is Time to Talk Day, and Time to Change are asking the nation to take 5 minutes to have a conversation about mental health.
Having a mental health problem is hard enough, but sometimes the isolation and stigma can make it even worse. But we can all help to break the silence. Talking about mental health doesn’t need to be difficult and can make a big difference. That’s why we’re asking you to take just 5 minutes on 5 February to have a conversation about mental health.
There are lots of different ways you can get involved in Time to Talk Day and the best starting point is the suggestions here on the Time to Change website. There are different ideas for what you can do in five minutes whether you want to spend them with friends and family, with colleagues, in your community, with students or pupils at university or school, or online.

Take 5

Time to Change will have an interactive counter where you can log your 5 minutes and watch the counter go up in real time by going to www.time-to-change.org.uk/timetotalkday.
