Thursday 1 February was Time to Talk Day and the theme for 2018 is talking about mental health anywhere.
It’s easy to think there’s no right place to talk about mental health. But the more we talk about it, the better life is for all of us. Time to Talk Day is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.
At MHFA England we believe in giving people the skills and confidence to be ready to support mental health anywhere – to listen non-judgementally, to reassure and signpost someone to support. So we talked to some of our Mental Health First Aiders and instructors to share their message: it's always a good time to talk about mental health.
Check out our Time to Talk Day articles:
