Time to Talk about Mental Health

This year’s National Time to Talk Day was held on Thursday 7th February in the coffee shop at Alsager's Community Church and was all about bringing together the right ingredients to have a conversation about mental health. We decided that would be an informal cup of tea or coffee, with biscuits and cake and a room of people all challenging the mental health stigma... We got everyone talking!

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.

Having conversations about mental health helps break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and takes the stigma out of something that affects us all. There are lots of different ways to have a conversation about mental health. And you don’t have to be an expert to talk.

Thank you to everyone that came along to take part, to the volunteers who supported us and to The Honey Pot Tea Room, who very generously supplied the most delicious cake.
