It's 'Time to Talk' on Thursday 7th February

Local mental health charity, Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, is promoting this years’ Time to Talk day on 7th February, with the message ‘however you do it, start a conversation about mental health.

Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to talk about mental health. This years’ Time to Talk Day is all about bringing together the right ingredients to have a conversation about mental health. Whether that’s tea, biscuits and close friends or a room full of people challenging mental health stigma, we want you to get talking.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind will be running a series of events on Time to Talk day itself, aimed at encouraging people to talk about mental health. Drop in events will be taking place in Hull, Withernsea, Bridlington, Beverley, Hessle, Goole and Grimsby, and everyone is welcome to pop along for a chat.

Emma Dallimore, Interim Chief Executive at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said

“There are lots of different ways to have a conversation about mental health, and every conversation helps- it helps to break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all.

“Time to Talk day is the opportunity to bring the right ingredients together for a conversation about mental health, whether that’s getting in the tea and biscuits, getting a room full of people to break the stigma together, or getting together with close family and friends”.
