It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health

20 Jan 2016

On Thursday, 4 February (11am – 2pm) in University Place Foyer and 1st Floor, Atrium

One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year (Mind), yet there continue to be stigmas and misconceptions around mental health.

Having a mental health problem is hard enough, but sometimes the isolation and stigma can make it even worse.

Help break the silence

Thursday, 4 February 2016 is Time to Talk Day, a day for the nation to take five minutes to have a conversation about mental health and tackle the stigma surrounding it.

On this day, we’re asking students and staff to:

  • Talk - don’t bottle things up. Talk to an advisor, tell us your story or have a conversation online;
  • Get informed - about the services available for you or someone you know;
  • Take a break - join our charity bake sale and information sessions in the University Place foyer ‘iZone’ and upstairs in the Atrium communal area between 11am and 2pm on Thursday, 4 February (proceeds to Mind);
  • Do something small that can make a big difference - meet with friends, take part in an activity or join a group.

Get involved and make a difference
