With 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem each year why is talking about it so hard? Why do many people keep their struggles a secret and deal with them alone? Why does the stigma around mental health still exist?
Thursday 7th February 2019 is Time to Talk Day, a campaign run by Time to Change, an organisation led by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. They are encouraging everyone to have a conversation with either friends or colleagues, neighbours or family members, in work or at schools about mental health and to challenge the stigma.
